So Labor Day 2016 is in the books and now the school year is really in full swing here in New Hampshire. ( And most places in the US too!) Labor Day is the first Monday of September here in the US (and Canada too but they spell it Labour Day), and it is end of the summer social season. Here in New Hampshire it also means the weather tends to start to change and often gets a little bit cooler with shorter days. But we are still due a few summery weather days for certain.
I have another journal page for Art Journal Journey today.
This month's theme is back to school and our hostess is Elizabeth. Many of you probably know I am a teacher. Right now most of students are 15-16 years old. I have 3 classes of biology with 67 students. Our classes are a semester long, meaning they go from the start of school until half way through the school year, which is the end of January Then I switch them off and get 3 new classes. As I don't know any of my students right now (although they seem pretty nice so far), I need to learn their names. I usually sit them alphabetically at least until I can get their names down. But as with so many things at the start of the school year, nothing ever goes as smooth as I'd like them to be. You just have to be flexible!
So my page today is a little take on those first day of class teacher chores.
And Labor Day weekend has been a great chance to recharge my batteries before this new school year really ramps up.
My afternoons lounging in my hammock are getting fewer.
So its also Tuesday which means it is T for Tuesday. Stop by and see what the T gang has been drinking and maybe even eating.
Holiday mornings are a great time for a big brunch. It was wonderful on a Monday morning to have everyone home. And have time for a leisurely late breakfast. So I made some waffles and cut up some strawberries. It was yummy. Instead of maple syrup I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on mine. And since it was a late breakfast for me, I had a big glass of skim milk with my waffles. And I didn't need any lunch that day either.
Hope everyone has a happy T Day.
