off to work we go...

Yes, teachers everywhere are returning to the classrooms this week. It is difficult to leave behind the lazy mornings, beach afternoons, and late night movies, but any great teacher will tell you that we are bitin' at the bit to get back into the classroom at this point. I miss it. I look forward to the systems and organization; the new school supplies; the nicely cleaned desks and pointy sharpened pencils; the empty gradebook; the fresh start.

But what I look forward to most are the kids...their funny sayings and silly smiles and knee-high hugs. Their wonder and mischief and discovery. A list of new names and a sea of new faces., it's not always easy. It's not always fun. But it's always an adventure.
