There wasn't a reason in particular, but I guess you could say it's been pretty stressful since August.
Lindsey (oldest daughter) went back to U of Iowa for her junior year. She has lots of committments (RA, UISG senator, student!)
I have a new principal. She's an instructional leader with clear expectations.
Interventions started weeks of assessment, meetings and data collection,
Allison (youngest daughter) started freshman year at ILStU and has collected new friends and has lots of opportunities for growth (read: oversleeps!)
Jeff started building my Little Free Library in between weekly trips to the east coast. He's been away more than home, so the LFL is only half built.
I started a new grad class and twice! my book order was canceled. My assignments are late.
The sky was a beautiful pink. Data meetings are finished, I can focus on teaching.
I worked on the door of my LFLibrary. I breathed. I had a piece of chocolate (and another).
I realized that I don't need to stress.
I just need to stretch
and do my best.
