Week One is Done!
We are off to a good start. Yes, I can still say that in spite of three criers on the first day of school, two bathroom accidents (Drat those darn tights on the legs of chubby five year olds!) and temperatures that hit into the upper 80s, it was a good first full week of school. The quote of the week: "Do we have to bring our credit card?" asked one bright eyed student when told we were going to the library.
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.
