Long time no see...

The past couple of months have been crazy for me. Not bad, just overly full and draining. What a difference between January when I wrote every single day and the subsequent months when I wrote less and less! Actually, I've been writing nearly as much as usual, just not here on the blog. I'm going to try to get back to it this summer.

We had our last day of school this past Friday. It is a strange kind of relief to walk out
the door that last day. Even though I know I'll be back the following Monday, it's a whole different kind of rhythm, a whole different kind of mood. Between May 31 and June 7 we had 6 different graduation services. Each of them was beautiful...so sweet and spiritual. The students worked hard to make everything go smoothly. I was so proud of them! Everything went off without a major hitch, and the minor ones were known only to a few. That, too, was a relief.

This week, we have staff meetings each day, but they are loose and focused and productive. We enjoy being and working together. Good thing! We see a lot of each other!

On a side note, my bird feeder went through a two week lull where I did not see one single bird there. Then, all of a sudden last week, they came back and have emptied the feeder about every other day! I don't know where they went, but it's nice to see them back...

Figured you'd been busy lately. Glad to see you back blogging.

Here I am back to comment now that my year is over. It was a rewarding year, but much too busy at the end. I am doing the National Board Certification so I start that with classes next week. Nine hundred teachers in our state of Washington applied for the scholarship for this program and they picked thirty. I was one of the thirty. I am glad I decided to challenge myself in yet another way with teaching. I hope you have good plans for the summer. I hope to be better at commenting!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who "abandoned blogging" for a little while!
