Back to School

I am probably the only one happy that school is back in session on Tuesday.  I am sure the teachers had a good rest and the kids are still having fun playing with their holiday toys but for me it was just a tad too long.  When you are working and running a household plus raising three active boys,  you cherish one day off.  But I find retirement to be boring at times with too many hours of nothing interesting to do and not enough diverse people to converse with.

This is probably why I enjoy being at the school helping my young friends learn about words and numbers and becoming a social person.   They seem to inspire me and also give me the boost of energy that I need to make my day fulfilled.  Just a few minutes ago I spoke with my little grand-daughter Meg who is celebrating her fifth birthday and I told her I would love to be five again and she giggled.  The joy of hearing a child laugh is awesome and I wish I could be there tomorrow with all of her little friends having cupcakes and ice-cream and watch her blow out her six candles.

Gee I wonder what her wish might be?  I know that wishes do come true sometimes and so I will be keeping my fingers crossed that Megs’ wishes will too.

Have a great weekend everyone.
