After a week of being AWOL from the blog, I'm finally posting. Sorry about that. Where have I been, you may ask?
I survived the first week of school! I've been in teacher mode all week. Getting back into the groove and ensuring a smooth transition requires that I spend my days fully focused and my evenings overplanning (or, in other words, in a constant state of panic). Thus, the lack of blog love this week.
I love my students. They're so bright and eager. Let's hope it lasts!
My feet, on the other hand, aren't feeling very loved. I tried to break in a new pair of shoes on Thursday. Heels, in fact. They were SO comfortable and way too cute in the shoe store, but five minutes into my school day, I knew that I had made a terrible mistake. Never again. Ugly teacher shoes it is. Cute is a luxury. Heels are for Carrie Bradshaw, not Ms. Sprott.
Anyway, the weekend is here, and I made some time for a little cut-and-paste in my life, and boy, did I need it. I'll have two pages to share soon!
In the meantime, I'm happy to share this mini-album, which I created using the Jenni Bowlin August project kit and some August kit odds and ends. It's the perfect size to house one of my favorite prayers, the Prayer of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. I'll keep the album in my desk at school, so that I can turn to it when I need to center myself or refresh my perspective.
I can't believe this weekend is almost over! I'll try not to be a stranger this week!
P.S. "The Words to Say It," my class at over at Miss Art's, is now open!
