jbs mercantile: august reveal

well, i surely meant to finish up all my loose ends last week, so i could start august with a clean slate.  yesterday was the first day of school and prepping for it (as well as getting ready for a new month at jbs mercantile) totally kicked my butt.  i took g to cracker barrel for a celebratory dinner after school, then we ran by target for school supplies on tax free weekend.  by the time we got home at 7:00, i was completely exhausted.  i laid down on the couch with chichi and promptly fell into a coma.  poor g had to put the cold stuff in the fridge for me.  i managed to get up at 8:30 just long enough to get ready for bed by 9:00, lol.  whew!

the first day was great though!  i have a couple new boys from egypt and the promise of a new russian student on monday.  i have an amazing crop of freshmen and i'll be teaching elementary school again for the first time in i think eight years.  i feel like it's going to be a fun year!

and here is a page celebrating july.  sunny days and lazy days and beach days.  but even school days and hard work days and exhausted days are worth celebrating.  i don't take any of them for granted.
