Ten On Ten: August

August 10th.

Ten pictures taken over ten hours.







Filling in the blanks.



...really fast.


A handful of images captured throughout the day...

You wouldn't know it from the date on the calendar or the weather report, but summer is over. School is just around the corner and that means teachers are busy setting up their rooms, going to meetings and trainings, and trying to get used to that blasted alarm clock again.

Or that describes our here-and-now.

I can't say that I know of one person or animal in this little family that is pleased about these current events.

I spent the day setting up my classroom for a new bunch of kindergartners.

My back hurts. Bad.

I'm most thankful for Tylenol, Shiner, and the back rub I'll soon be receiving.

Lord bless you if your Ten On Ten was filled with heavy lifting, unpacking boxes, moving furniture, and thoughts of another school year.

I tip my hat to all you fellow teachers out there...

May your weeks pass quickly and your weekends be savored.
