all the little things

random 147


I am sadly drowning with end of the school year paperwork these days. So bad that I almost fell asleep while standing in line at the auto shop when I had my car oil changed this afternoon. No kidding. I could barely keep my eyes open, I had to pinch myself.

Thankfully, there are some little joys. Some of my students gave me a single rose and a sunflower plant from their gardening class. I also gave them these cute animal puzzle erasers as a gift for working so hard this school year and you won't believe how happy they were! It's amazing how the smallest of things can make them so excited.

Three more days to go. I can do this.
