I’m starting my fourth week of school today. It’s no longer back-to-school time for me, it’s just the plain ole school year.
The thrill of new school supplies and new outfits is gone. My students are showing more of themselves and less of the pretend-to-be-good first weeks. I’m finally getting used to the 5:15 AM alarm clock (just kidding, that’s never going to happen).
It was very fall-like for a few weeks here and I got all cozy thinking about hot chocolate and bonfires, scarves and boots. But this week is supposed to be hot and sunny and I’m ready for that again too.
My goal for the week is to be at the pool by 3:15 at least one day after school. Just me, a book, and a few cute pool boys.
I’m penciling it in right now…
P.S. That necklace above? It gave off a quiet clanging sound every time I walked. Sort of like a cow bell. Not sure how often I’ll be wearing that one. It kind of messed with my head all day.
