Tonight was orientation for secondary students. Tomorrow night is orientation for elementary students. Orientation is exciting because we hand out yearbooks. Naturally I worry, after all the hard work we put into the yearbook, whether people will like it. That was especially true this year because the cover is very unique. What a relief! The book is a hit. We are getting lots of compliments, and are quickly selling the few extra copies that Taylor Publishing sent us.
Orientation also means that Teacher In Service is over. That is good. I always learn a lot, but I sit way too much. When I'm at home, I move constantly unless I'm reading or on the computer. When I'm teaching, I'm in constant motion. But at In Service I sit and sit and sit.
As we pulled into the driveway tonight, I said, "I'm going to change clothes and run!" Two miles later I returned home tired but happy. It is hard to explain to someone who doesn't run (like my Type As) that while my muscles may be tired after a run, the rest of me is energized.
My daughter took this picture of me in Bryce National Park. It has taken several days to figure out how to get it into my blog. I tried to make the procedure way too complicated. Now that I know how easy it is, I'll try to post an occasional picture.
