Six-Word Saturday Meme #42

Posted on: May 24, 2014


I’m happy sad; summer is here.

On the last of school, I was taking down photos and other memorabilia from my classroom walls. One of my students came by to pick up a friendship chain my reading groups had created. She observed, “The classroom looks empty and lonely.” I agreed, telling her that I wanted to cry, because I’d miss all of them. That was a very true sentiment.

At the same time, I understood every teacher who during the past weeks exclaimed, “I need a break!” Already, I appreciate that last night I could stay out late with friends and this morning I could recover by sleeping late. It’s also lovely getting to remind myself of how quiet and unhurried life can be. Teaching always involves hustle and bustle, as one juggles multiple tasks. It will be nice for a couple of months to focus on family and hobbies.


That’s my week. What about yours?

Enjoy your summer. Fall will be here in its own time. Hugs.

Enjoy your vacation too! Hugs.

Love this sentiment. Enjoy the summer – memories will always be there!

First on my list of summer activities is two weeks of reading books by my favorite author, Sara Zarr.

Oh yeah. I remember those days.

Hopefully, I brought back some bittersweet memories. 😉

enjoy your summer- Fall will be here before you know it!

Tut! Tut! Don’t talk about fall. 😉
