I said it before and I’ll say it again because the first time was just for practice. The nest is EMPTY. It is really official this time. D2, as already discussed in great detail, is settled into college life six hours away. D1 called today to tell us she has accepted a job. Not just a job but a job three states and twelve hours away! Why does that make the nest seem even emptier. OK, I’m done pouting. My Harley Stud and I are thrilled for her. She is so excited, she can hardly contain herself. She is (as far as I’m concerned) North Carolina’s newest and best social studies teacher!
She has accepted a position to teach 6th grade social studies, a subject about which she is passionate. The subject is quite appropriate for her. Besides her degree in psychology, she has a lifelong interest in history nurtured by roadtrips that included American History Brain Quest Games, naming state capitals and watching An American President with her mother a gazillion times. What? The movie isn’t real? Blasphemy!
My baby who was able to recite the pledge of allegiance by the age of 22 months (I swear, I have video) My little girl who had her first lesson plan in her head long before she even decided to pursue a career as an educator. Yep, that’s what she is: an educator. WOW! Watch out North Carolina. The sixth grade will never be the same!
HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
