The Casting Dock

If you’re looking for me these days…

…odds are, you’ll find me here:

Nearly 14 hours door-to-door and back again today. Sheeesh.

I really am working on those boundaries and that whole “self-care” thing that my professors harped on and on about in grad school, but that pesky little perfectionist in me struggles to leave too many balls hanging in the air  (figuratively, of course…though my rainbow paper lanterns make that analogy a bit confusing…ha!).

Luckily, I love my job and I really love my kids. It may be busy, hectic, and at times overwhelming, but at least I genuinely like it.

Praise the Lord, right?

I couldn’t imagine all those hours on something I didn’t at least like.

PS. Our school-wide positive behavior system is based off of Kathryn Otoshi’s book One(“Be the One” is our theme…in case that wasn’t clear by the giant letters/1 pinned to my wall…). I highly recommend it for anyone working with younger kids! The themes are concrete and our kids have really gotten it.

I don’t know how I missed this post, but I love it! Your office is so bright and cheerful and welcoming! I’m glad you love your job even though it’s exhausting. Also, your comment once again made me laugh on Scott’s bday post – thanks! :) Scott commented back about Jerry if you want to see it. I was going to put it on your FB wall since I figured you wouldn’t go back to read follow-up comments, but then totally forgot! Hope you are both doing well!

Oh dear, these pictures bring me back to the Fall more than anything! *memories*
