    Wow! School started the first week of August here. Some schools straggled into the second week, with the universities beginning the term a week or two ago. I can't keep up with all of the different dates!

    Dawn, you and Steven accomplished a lot during your summer holiday. And you'll probably have a break of some sort in a few weeks, won't you?

    I'm in Massachusetts, and many of our schools are already back in session...except the one I teach at! Our city is one of the last ones to start; we have teacher-training days at the very end of August, and classes always start on the first Wednesday after Labor Day (this coming Monday).

    I have sooooo much to do to prepare! I've had my classroom moved from a humongous lab room to a tiny standard room. Fitting ten years of pack-rat stuff in there is like trying to fit twenty pounds of manure into a five-pound sack. Ain't gonna happen!

    I'm always nervous about starting back, and always reluctant to go. Six weeks of holiday? I get TEN and it's not enough! (I'm just greedy...)

    It's about finding someone you can share a lifetime with.

    I know - it'll be half term again before you know it!

    Schools here broke up on the 23rd July, and Lou was straight off to Turkey for a week - then a few days home, then we went to Egypt (photos on facebook, if you fancy a nose). She was back teaching summer school on August 20th, had tuesday off but had planning to do, as she was in school today leading the inset on APP. Kids are back in school Monday!!

    I've had a holiday every holiday this year, if that makes sense. Hopefully just one trip next year, to the happiest place on earth!!
