Today was the last day of school.
When you're a teacher (or student), the world is seen through an entirely different lens on the last day of school. I don't care if it's gloomy, overcast, or pouring down rain, things seem a lot brighter on the last day of school. It *seems* like the sun is out, for sure.
Today, by a matter of circumstance, my children and I walked home from school. About a five-minute walk, but it was really beautiful. Bluest blue skies I'd seen in awhile and everything (and I mean everything) was green and verdant. The laden-down backpack I was schlepping seemed filled with feathers!
