Now you begin the fun part of your pregnancy, I mean school year. Change of season and wardrobe gets you excited about the future. You cruise through the holidays because they break up the work week. Lots of parties, seasonal cheer and winter break! You forget what's ahead.
The end of the school year seems so far away, almost an unattainable goal. You trudge through the endless days between winter and spring feeling swollen with work and responsibilities. You're tired of the sleepless nights and backaches from being on your feet all day in the classroom.
Then you get Spring Break!. That perfect vacation that gives you a chance to rest for the coming events. Or if you have a burst of energy you'll take some exciting trip knowing that the coming weeks will be brutal.

Kind of like the pregnancy amnesia. We remember the good and forget about the uncomfortable parts.

I'm going to write a weekly post about each week of school this year. It may be my ramblings (like today) or maybe I'll teach you the lessons I taught the past week.
Join me in creating a "School Year Journal." Or call it whatever you want. Keep track of your weekly thoughts and the images you create for the next nine months. Feel free to share with me!
