Where did the past two weeks disappear to? We had such a lovely summer, and now it is fading. Back to school, back to a schedule, back to the regular life. I do love it, though! I am delighted to see my students, now a knowledge-filled grade older, and meet the new sixth graders, who look so little and young. Schedules are finally in place, groups have started, and the year begins! We have been having work done on our school roof for the entire summer. Unfortunately, it is still not finished! It gets pretty smelly from all the epoxy that is being used on the flat roof above my office. Hopefully it will be done soon.
