The school year with kids ended Friday. It has been a good year, and not an especially stressful one, compared to last year. But I'm still always surprised at how tired I get. The accumulation of exhaustion is stealthy, and lurks to leap out when you stop moving. And Saturday I stropped moving. I slept a good 8 hours overnight, then during the day I promptly took two naps!
I feel good now, and have even done three loads of laundry and vacuumed the entire apartment before church! Whoever made up the school year and sandwiched a summer in between them knew what he was doing. Summer is necessary, for the teachers and the kids. Let's have a good, fun, and safe summer everyone!
“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
