3 weeks in...

image from

Friday marked the end of the 3rd week of school for me.  It has been a whirlwind; a wild and  happy whirlwind.

I can say this without reservation--I absolutely LOVE being a high school librarian.  LOVE it.  I knew it would be a new adventure, but I honestly didn't realize I would enjoy it so much from day one.

It has been amazing to see former students who attended my middle school----they are taller and many of the boys have more facial hair, but other than that they are basically the same sweet kids I knew way back when.

I am beginning to see progress in adding some cozy reading areas and other little touches that make the library feel like my home away from home.

I will be back on the blogging bandwagon soon---but have learned over the years to give myself time to settle in and make what is important important when I'm in the midst of change and a major learning curve.  I hope you will remember this, too----it is OKAY for you to take time when you need to take time.  It is okay to be still.  It is okay to ponder and think and breathe when you need to do so---seriously, if our buckets are not full, we cannot fill the buckets of others.

I hope your new school year has started of marvelously!
