I cannot believe that I have not posted to my blog yet in September. With five children in the house and the school year underway, my role as "social director" and chauffeur has become busier than ever. In addition to getting everyone to their activities, I have one college course this autumn and will be beginning a part time job. I have some training sessions this week, and then next week will begin my role as a one-on-one aide for a student in a nearby school.
I was sorry to miss posting for Poetry Thursday last week, and will have to miss it again this week because of a busy agenda for the day. I hope to resume my exploration of various types of poetry next week.
It is rainy and cool this afternoon. I don't mind. If it was warm and sunny, I would have wanted to spend the morning in the garden instead of indoors doing housework, college course work, and reading with little Tanka. He wrote his name independently for the first time today. It is wobbly and so cute, and some of the letters are "inside out and backwards." (Yes, I dated it and set it aside to save!)
My clock tells me it is about time to make another run to the bus stop, so I'll bring this to a close. I hope to catch up on reading blogs and emails soon! Take care!
