Empty Nests, Waterfalls, and Sweet Little Valentines

Three of the many stacks of books around the house, begging to be opened. Most days I would say that my kids are far from grown, my youngest being only fifteen. But more days than I care for lately, I find myself alone in the overwhelming quiet of my home (sometimes I feel that the quiet is so much louder than the rough-housing banter of a house filled with boys) with only a book to keep me company, Josh being the workaholic that he is and probably will always be.

Write About It Wednesday: Mentor Texts for Narrative

Yay for May! I can't believe the school year is wrapping up. We are in the middle of our state testing and I couldn't be more exhausted. My classroom walls are bare and my desks are in rows. It feels like 1983... except with better hair styles. I cannot wait to put my room back together and regain some structure in my day! But... thank goodness I scarfed down a FREE Chipotle burrito today. That made it better. I would have taken a picture but I did not for two reasons: 1. I felt bad about…
