String art that is. I mentioned it on Monday's "Creating Current." I made this one first, and started a Texas today in hopes to put them on display together to rep our home states and where we love the most. Not sure if I am crazy about the yarn (I think bakers twine might looks more polished?), but it's about the process, right?.
I smiled this morning on my way to work because it was a gorgeous morning and I was feeling ready for the day. The fourth to last day of the 2012 school year.
And then I got to work and realized that it's the fourth to last day with my senior students - a bitter sweet feeling I recall from last year. Bittersweet because I have now known another class since they were freshman. Watched them grow, and gotten to know and appreciate their creativity and leadership in my classes. And I will miss each and every one of them. But I smiled and signed their books and wished them well because I am excited for them and excited to see the places they will go.
And tonight, as I uploaded this photo from my iPhone, I smiled again...
because I look like my mom. Adam even commented that "you look a lot like your mom in that photo."
And now I know how she felt on her fourth to last day of her fourth and fifth year of teaching high school students.
It's a weird and awesome feeling all at the same time.
Thanks for dropping by :)
