Since Last March
Since last March, I’ve been everywhere.
Everywhere for time with the kids in Iowa, Kentucky, holidays and the State Fair,
Everywhere for family events – high school graduations, visiting cousins, and traveling with the elders,
Everywhere for stretching and growing my mind.
Since last March, my grandson turned two.
Two and can name a herd of dinosaurs,
Two and a fish in the swimming pool,
Two and totally wrapped in our hearts!
Since last March, I’ve said good-bye.
Good-bye to my work of 19 years,
Good-bye to students, teachers and staff,
Good-bye to fellow AEA staff,
Good-bye to forty years of daily working from 7 to 5 or more!!!
Since last March, I’ve said hello.
Hello to friends who I’ve met face to face,
Hello to slicers, bloggers, and voxers from or at #tcrwp, #ncte17, #g2great , and #ccira18,
Hello to a daily reading and writing routine
Hello to the #g2great planning, chatting, and blogging team.
It’s time to write!
Do you use other “years” besides a school year or a calendar year?
How do you reflect on what has happened “since last year”?
