The last few weeks have been busy and full. Today’s school day in the Middle School will feature a host of community-building activities —— from community service to just plain fun. It will be filled with energy and excitement and it will be exhausting. When the day closes at 3 pm, our Winter Break will begin. That means that two weeks of time off stretch before me. It’s a most welcoming prospect. I’m looking forward to some leisurely mornings, afternoon naps, long hours with good books, time to work out without being rushed, suppers served before 7 pm……the list of things made better thanks to time off stretches before me.
