What a stark contrast between Monday and Tuesday! I started off wearing my sweater yesterday morning to our field trip. By afternoon we were basking in warm sunshine and enjoying recess! Yeah!
I was also able to walk around the yard yesterday afternoon, even though it is a bit spongy after four inches of rain. I took some photos and was halfway up the hill when I realized I could hear a meadowlark singing. It has been so windy and noisy for the past few days that I have not heard the birds. Such a comforting sound- it made me wonder how many people have a few such calming moments in their day.
We received our “end of the year” checklist yesterday. It is a list of tasks and paperwork to be completed before the last day of school. Last day. How did we get here so quickly? I guess I say that every year, but this year is especially poignant for me because I think I will miss this class more than most. They have been challenging, entertaining, and enjoyable. If they are the future we are in good hands.
Not much to say this morning, so just enjoy the photos. And no, that is not a bluebird in the old bluebird house. The raccoons have raided it so many times that I had to put wire around it to make them stop. Now the bluebirds are nesting in two new houses and the wren has taken over the old one. That is a female bluebird in the photo.
Hope things are back to normal where you are!
