Holding on and Riding out the Storm


March SOLC–Day 23

They say a picture paints a thousand words. I snapped this one during one of our recent blizzards, and I hope it counts for at least a few, because right now it’s about all I can come up with.  I can totally relate to this poor cardinal, buffeted by the winds and clinging to a branch with its wee feet. With report cards this week, a school concert tonight, parent-teacher conferences and MEA testing next week, and the ongoing SOL challenge, I, too, am just holding on and trying to ride out the storm!

      I was just reminding myself not to wish next week away, Amy, but, my oh my, conference week is always a struggle. I’m always envious of teachers who have half days or adjusted schedules during that time.
