Today is August 1. That means school begins in 2 weeks. In 2 weeks I will be sitting in a meeting, excited about the beginning of a new school year, but sad that the summer is over. I will be thinking about changes I can make in my teaching that will hopefully make the year run smoother.
All of my teacher friends are posting pictures of their fabulous vacations and adventures on Facebooks and I'm trying to finish cleaning up the last of the junk piles. I know that once school starts, time will be limited and the piles will grow again. I'm trying to practice routines that will keep the clutter at bay and optimistic that I will be able to balance school and home and find time to get some quilts done as well.
