Today was the first day back at work after a two week break. While most people are afraid that they won’t be able to get up early again, I, on the other hand inevitably have trouble sleeping. This means that I wake up almost every hour. Yes…so much fun! Going to work on these two days before the students arrive is a never-ending list of things-to-do. Educators may have a vacation that others envy, but believe me it’s non-stop when we are at work, even at home.
I did have a sweet surprise waiting for me. Before the break, the students and teachers were able to purchase and paint pottery pieces. I didn’t think I would have time to finish one, but obviously I was wrong. They look better than I thought….especially since the color of the paint is not the color that it will show after being fired. Not bad if I do say so myself!
