Well, it has felt like a bit of a sloppy week. I can't seem to figure out if I'm coming or going. I am definitely in better spirits today than I was a week ago and there are several reasons why.
1. My red chair: I ditched my old desk chair, which was lovely and comfy, but had duct tape around one arm. It was gray, and there is something just wonderful about the color red in my classroom.
2. Gifts from Guatemala: Two of my amazing students went to Guatemala on a missions trip this summer. They brought back a mug (from which I am drinking gobs of coffee) and two bracelets. These gifts made my whole first week (maybe my whole month). I love when my students think about Spanish class during the summer or think about me while in a Spanish-speaking place!
