My classroom is ready (well, almost), and my week-long teacher meetings start first thing in the morning, so this evening I am facing Summer’s end full in the face. It’s been a lovely summer, and even though I’m excited to start another school year and meet a new group of brand-new second graders next week, I’m sad to part with the freedom and calm of my summer days. So last week, in quiet celebration of such a lovely summer, my daughter and I returned three different times to a bench overlooking the Puget Sound, and sat there soaking up the summer sunshine and watching the ferries come and go, and come and go.
Best wishes to all my teacher blogger friends out there!
(Les…yes, it’s the Edmonds-Kingston ferry!)
