So Much To Do Saturday

This entire week's focus was on the start of school. It is such an exciting time. Shiny waxed floors, new school supplies, new clothes, anxious students, hugs of welcome. Our opening day's keynote speaker talked about attitude and keeping things in perspective.

This graphic, complements of Mandie of Hollyberry Corner, is a good reminder for everyone!

Since all of my time and energy was spent in my classroom, my home looks neglected. My list of things to do is growing faster than I can cross things off. Since both daughters are away at college and husband is golfing, I can really make tracks!! Best wishes for a great day.

Natalie, thanks for adding me to your blog list. I appreciate your comments.

I imagine it takes some time to get back into a work routine after being off all summer. I also enjoyed reading your empty nester post. It made me think of when my girls left home.

Have a nice day.

Not being a schoolteacher, and no longer having children at home, I no longer experience that separation of seasons when school resumes each fall. Our local climate stays hot pretty much through October, so this time of year is just pretty much a continuance of summer for me.

I do remember when the kids were younger, though, that anticipation of the new school year, what they'd be learning, etc. It was always an exciting time for the whole family, and a time to contemplate new projects for home as well.
