The Calm Before the Storm

'Twas the night before school year,
And all through the room...

A teacher was working,
And wishing for June.

The bulletin boards done, papered with care,
Knowing that children soon would be there.

The admins long gone, snug in their beds,
With visions of PowerPoints dancing in their heads...

Okay, so the day before the first day of school really has more of a New Year's Eve sense to it than Christmas Eve. It's the time for new beginnings, resolutions, and the promise of hope that a new year contains.

It is the last bit of fantasy before reality starts slapping you around in the morning.

To the edublogger community, best wishes for a smooth start to the school year. I know that many of you are already navigating the waters. Thanks for assuring us that it's still fun and can be done. Happy School Year to all...and to all a good night.

Ditto on the great year, SG!

You guys make me feel guilty being retired! Well, not so much. ;-)

I thought so. LOL
