Since Last March
Since last March, I’ve been everywhere.
Everywhere for time with the kids in Iowa, Kentucky, holidays and Hawkeye football.
Everywhere for family events – graduation, graduation, graduation and visiting cousins, kids football, volleyball, soccer, and traveling with the elders.
Everywhere for stretching and growing my mind.
Since last March, the magic number is two.
Two grandsons as cute as can be,
Two boys growing and stretching,
Two months from four and four months from one.
Since last March, I’ve said good-bye.
Good-bye to relatives and friends,
Good-bye to old routines,
Good-bye to doubt and fear!
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, #ncte18, #g2great, and #ccira19,
Hello to ILA – a Literacy Leadership Brief, hosting a chat, and planning for a conference institute,
Hello to friends, family, and.colleagues!
It’s time to write!
How are you celebrating your year?
What “goodbyes” and “hellos” have you found?
