It has been a whirlwind of a week. I have had one situation come up after another. Everything from kids having a meltdown to finding out my flight leaves two hours before I thought and needing to take a half day off at the last second. It’s been nuts.
Everything has, as usual, turned out just fine, but I have miles to go before I sleep. I am teaching my three most difficult classes this morning, all while getting all of my classroom animals home with families for the break AND making sure I get all my students’ work posted in the hall for the Open House I won’t be here for. Then, I rush home and grab my bags to go pick up my mom from babysitting her godson so that we can barely make it to the airport in time for our flight.
After that, though, we are on our way to my grad school visit! The campus is simply gorgeous and I cannot wait! I’ll get to see old friends and meet new ones and this school has a daily rota of services in which all residents are required to participate. This sense of tradition and ritual is something my life is thoroughly steep in, so I’m really excited to start my Spring Break with this time of centering and change, focused entirely on me and my relationship with God. Now all I have to do is figure out what focus I want my degree to have!
