Can you believe it is already August? Where has the time gone? Between swimming team, Taekwondo and dance team, the kid's summer activities have kept us extremely busy. I find myself counting down the days until school starts.
I remember when I taught second grade in The Woodlands. I was single and had not a care in the world (although at the time I THOUGHT I did). I could never understand the teachers that were moms. They would get to work very early on Mondays and just sit at their desk. I would be running around at the last minute, sure to have arrived with no time to spare, and they would appear to be in some yoga-like trance. I thought maybe they had seen a ghost, or had bad news.
When I asked them if everything was okay, they would just smile and say, "Yes. I am enjoying a little peace and quiet after my hectic weekend with all the kid's activities. I have to come to work on Mondays to slow down and rest."
Now I understand.
