Slice of Life Tuesday: Running Out of Time


Running, running, running…

To the school supply stores, to the doctor, to the dentist, to the SCUBA shop, to Ohio for SCUBA day…wait! Today is National Book Lovers Day! I have to read! I cannot believe these are the last days of summer. I agree with a fellow Slicer; I’m not ready!

Running, running, running...

I have draft-planned my first few weeks of school. There are so many great ideas, stories, and lessons. Mostly, I want my students to read and write well, and have fun doing it! Yet, I feel a sense of urgency, and the meetings for staff development start next week — wait! Oh, no, it’s THIS week!

Running, running, running…

With all of this running around, I should be in great shape to start the school year. We shall see!

  1. Starting school is like running a marathon. There is so much to do so it looks effortless when the kids arrive. Have a great start!

  2. Slow down and make some time to breathe.
    I read this article in the Sunday NYT. I cut it out so my husband and I can keep rereading it.
    Here’s to a great start and a great school year!

  3. Ah yes, running to and from the first day of school. I remember wanting every day of August to last as long I as could. So enjoy, breathe and remember the second day will be even better. 🙂
