20 days....

Our first two inservice days are in 20 days.... so I'm trying to think of what I want to accomplish in the next three weeks.

I made a list of projects that are in various stages of completion.  I have been, for some unknown reason, avoiding the completion of Bonnie Hunter's mystery Easy Street.  I have no explanation for avoiding it.  It just gets pushed aside.  So today I have it laid out on the floor and if I accomplish nothing else today it will be putting the blocks together... oh and to make a peach pie.

Since I cannot get into my classroom until Tuesday as they are scrubbing and waxing the hallways, I am not going to apply too much effort to school work.  I want to go in to school so I am immersed in 'the zone'.  I concentrate better in there.  I also have to go through my classroom library and pull out books that are either too young or never circulate and offer them to other teachers.

I know some of you, or your children, have started school.  A former student and her family just recently moved to Indiana and started school yesterday.  They have a really interesting calendar... 9 weeks on, two weeks off.  I think that would be awesome, but I don't see it happening here.

So to all of you I wish you a pleasant day.  Kevin and I are headed out tomorrow to see Erin, Lester, and Eddie (aka "The Baby of the World"). Nana needs some baby love before school starts.

Quilty Hugs!

This week we actually began doing our pre-service workshops with our schools. I am at a school today in fact, working with a leadership team. But it was sure nice to have most of July off this year, which doesn't usually happen for me. It was always a mix of feelings at this point in the summer - dread and excitement. Dread of the workload to be ready for that first day and excitement about a new year.

I hope you get lots done in your 20 days. I hope you have a great school year.
