Counting Change

One moment it's there, the next, poof, it's gone!  The background I was enjoying from for over a year disappeared.  I have the code, it's still there, but the picture vanished. I've done everything I know to try to restore it with no success. In a way, I'm not surprised because lots of things have been changing lately.

I'm in that season where things are just different than they used to be. At school many of my colleagues have either moved on to other endeavors or retired. Teaching has new standards, new evaluations, new testing, new grading systems, new technology, new textbooks, you name it, it's all different.   "Fruit basket turnover!" As I reflect on my own state of the union, I've learned some things about change.

A Week To Remember

Can I have a witness?

Some weeks are just C-R-A-Z-Y!

Usually these crazy weeks involve testing,
and schedule changes,
and uncooperative computers,
and misplaced important papers,
and congestion.

But in the eye of the storm 
the sun still shines,
 and we can see some pretty,
 amazing things ~
