Gratitude post for school and its teachers

 Another school year has passed.  A moment that always triggers some reflection. 



So now we have two months without/ with less morning rush, with less morning walks where I walk behind my chatting boys. No weekly letters announcing lots of exciting activities that often make me jealous and wish I was still in school  (and why do my school memories seem so much more boring, we didn't do so much fun stuff!).  I won't pick up dirty boys that clearly played the hell out of their big school garden or have dirth soil under their nails because they have been working hard in their class vegetable garden. We won't gather crafts on our table for 2 months. 

The boys claim they will miss school, and in a way I will too.  I am grateful for the school, the teachers and their approach.  At the same time I do treasure the summer months, the camps, the summer, the freedom.  We'll be fine and enjoying July and August to the fullest and we'll walk back with a big smile on Sept 1st to plenty of new school adventures.
