And, so the semester begins. Chaos, the wave of exhaustion from the anxiety of meeting 125 or so people in the course of two days. The intensity of beginning to cultivate the ground in order to grow a creative, healthy, and academically engaging classroom environment quickly always leaves me wiped out. The change in our family schedule impacts both HWIA(He Who is Adored) and my son. New child care expectations, new routines to be established. It is an exciting time, full of possibilities for success, re dedication to my own and others learning. I like beginnings.
Ahhh, my son, (who is meticulously unscrewing the cap off of the Liquid Paper as I sit typing this).
