See the raindrops dancing in this 'full to the brim' urn? The rain has been pretty much constant this week. Since I had plenty of indoor chores and yet another cold, I really didn't find it too much of an inconvenience. The rain can stop on Monday. Then the kids can get out to recess and we teachers can keep our sanity.
My blog's title originated in July 2004 as I was preparing to send my then 16 year old daughter to Annecy, France as an exchange student. It was to be a 10 and 1/2 month separation that I was sure I could not endure. BUT, thanks to the internet and blogging I survived her adventures outside of our 'nest'. Once she returned, I thought of changing the title but realized that 10 and 1/2 Months was a fitting description of the cycle of my teaching life too. Now that I am retired the days and months have much less structure but the title remains out of nostalgia for my teaching days.
