This is where I sit. everyday. just about.
For those of you who don't know, I have a day job.
I work at a school and it just happens to also be my kids school.
This is my emotional compromise to the small bit of sadness I feel for not homeschooling.
Not that anyone would benefit if I did, I am 85% sure. But since I am a homeschooled kid myself, I have more than a bit of nostalgia for the practice. And as a woman, I reserve the right to change my mind at any time and go for it with gusto.
But for now, I need a job and they need a school and it is a HUGE blessing that they are both together.
I am the Activity Coordinator for our school. We are an urban charter school, which means our school is an 100 year old building in the heart of downtown. Because we are a charter school we do a lot of cool and unique things. Like having someone on staff to help plan field trips and activities, handle things that have to do with dismissal, the calendar etc. On a good day my job is sort of like being the cruise ship director and I love it.
This year I had room behind my desk for a shelf where I could put lots of use and cute items, which of course I love. I didn't buy a single item for the shelf, instead I just gathered bits and pieces from here and there to create a happy, colorful space.
One day after it was finished, Miles came in, looked at everything and said "this is sort of like you Museum of Jerusalem's Artifacts huh?"
I had to laugh, because of course that is EXACTLY what it is.
What a smart kid!
Hope your Monday is as lovely as you are,
PS- So, where do you sit (or stand) all day?
