We're home at Ivan's behest. It doesn't look like it's going to hit us, which is of course good for many reasons, not the least of which is that I did not heed the administration's advice to make my classroom hurricane-ready. I guess I didn't believe for a second that we wouldn't be at school on Tuesday. Obviously can't say I'm not glad that I was wrong on that one. Anyway, it gave me the time to have a conversation with my good friend, Ellen, from Mandeville High School, about how things are going at our respective schools. It really gave me a perspective that I needed. Reflecting off of her I saw how lucky I am to be where I am, doing what I'm doing, and it reminded me of how unjaded and even innocent my students are.
I'm too jumpy to write any more today.

Disposed of: a lawn chair and an extra pair of headphones.
