Two Writing Teachers
(Can you tell I miss working with my students? It's too quiet at home!)
My oldest is an early bird. She's taking two classes, working on student government projects, and bouncing between two internships. We share a pot of coffee in the morning as she fine-tunes her Spanish homework and I read two newspapers. Today she wished she had decided to sit on the beach this summer. I told her to start practicing, "Sorry, I can't help" but we both like to be involved and helpful.
My youngest would sleep ALLLLL DAAAAYYYY if she could. She's babysitting and works camp next month for little ones with special needs. Yesterday she went back to dance classes for the first time in three years. Today she was on the couch, with legs that "can.not.move." We spend time together in the evenings watching movies or singing along to music.
It's fun (but still, there's a lot of dishes) to have these two around this summer. I know in a few years my house will empty (maybe?) and Jeff will have to entertain me. But for now, I'm grateful for the summer and connecting with my girls.
