Kids gone - time to relax. First day of school over. Note the empty space on the wall where my flash new Promethean IWB is supposed to be!
Interesting how a photo may affect a person. With the soft affect of it and the subject I find myself with tears rolling down my face.My sister was a teacher in Wellington. Through her morphine induced haze lying dying in the hospice she composed a speech for each for us.To me she said, "Thank you for putting the chairs up." She was thanking me for quitting my job for a time to be with her, helping her pack up the classroom one last time and helping her through her final days.Thanks for the photo.I haven't had a good cry in a long time.Allanah
Wow - that's really bittersweet isn't it.Hugs
