The change hit me a bit hard at first. I don't like change (even if it is a good one). But the more I have thought and prayed about it, the more excited I get. Instead of being a classroom teacher of one group, I will be doing reading for grades 2-5. Students who are struggling will come to me. I will have a full load each segment and likely my first chore will be simply (uh, simply?) to ignite a passion for reading. I feel very passionate about reading and words and poetry, so my days have a lot of promise for fun. I feel if I can get over the mental hurdle of "reading is a chore", the rest will fall into place. Maybe that is being a bit too simplistic in my thinking, but I honestly don't think so. I am not a good baseball player because I have no desire to practice baseball. I 'll keep you posted on how it goes.
Right now, summer has officially began! I have great plans for this summer. My number one goal is to do a major cleaning of my house - throw away anything we haven't used in years. Then of course, there are the hours filled with scrapbooking, tangling, playing with the wood burner, doing some school planning, and lots of back yard time with Lakota. No major trips or vacations, but this is the sort of vacation I love!
I had my inchie ready by Sunday night, but on Monday, I could not even think about putting it up. After the move, bed was all I could think about. Every Inchie Monday's word this week was "table". I like to try to think out of the box. This, admittedly, isn't too far out of the box. I thought of table tennis (ping pong).
