Laura goes back to work
Her staycation is over. Don't you love the freedom we have to create words. A vacation in which we went nowhere....a staycation. Sort of the Carmageddon in LA freeway lingo.
Its bittersweet for us, because her career is important to her, and us. It keeps her young. But there is this growing realization with every passing year that, contrary to public opinion, first graders are not sweet. They can be loud, selfish, obnoxious, and unruly. But....as I said yesterday in church, life is a process of growing, and Laura gives these kids love, structure, and the foundations of language and writing that will change there lives forever, and this is important...and trying work. You go girl!!!!
