Once more into the fray

Vacation over. School starts again. The lazy days of summer didn't feel like they were flying by, and yet, it is unbelievable to me that we're into September already.
I truly spoiled myself this summer. I was in the pool at least once a day, with the exception of, maybe, 7 days total. I actually scheduled in daily pool time. Felt so selfish at the time, but I'm so glad I did that. Just floated, read trash, read great stuff, read school stuff. Listened to the birds. Watched the butterflies. I must be sure to do that next summer as well.
I do seem to thrive on the busy-ness of the school day, though. I'm not sure what's gonna happen to my brain (and my time) when I finally retire (or they kick me out, whichever comes first). I love reading tips from other teachers, thinking up new ways to present material, playing with the ever-advancing technology. I need to stop worrying about the "what will happen whens" and concentrate on the NOW. 
Okay. I'll do that. Just as I enjoyed every minute of summer leisure, I'll treasure every moment of hectic school-day needs. 
Take a breath…let it out…and…GO!
