Before you get too anxious over the above snap, I acquired it from a friend's vacation photos. They took a cruise & got an eyeful after a storm on the island of St. Maarten. Yes, this is a school bus. And yes, looks like a big ol' tree fell on it. I'm told that no one was harmed, however, either on the bus, or in the snapping of this shot.
This photo reminds me of how I've been feeling the past few weeks, as our unseasonably (in the 30s this a.m....good grief!) cool Spring days melt into the more relaxed pace of Summer.
I'm busy wrapping up things at Our Humble High School. The AP Lang exam is tomorrow, which means that class is all downhill from here on out. I'm assigning Catcher in the Rye at the end of the week & I've promised my cherubs we could frolic for awhile to relieve AP stress.
I'm serving as sounding board & Dear Abby to my two chicas, one of whom is suffering through seriously difficult law school exams & the other who just wants to quit college (a couple more weeks...hang in there, little bit!), come home & hang out at the pool.
And I keep reminding all of the above that we all deal with our own little demons & we all suffer our own little (and sometimes not so little) setbacks. At this time of year, with so many competing forces vying for our attention, it's sometimes best just to push back.
Always remember. Things could be worse. Just ask that school bus driver in St. Maarten.
