School Days



Yesterday the entire family went back to school. Nathaniel started his second year of law school, Maya started first grade (she is growing up too fast!) and I started a long term sub job that will last at least two weeks. I really am enjoying it so far, and wish that it would turn into a permanent position. The job is open, but someone will probably transfer and take it. Cross your fingers for me, though and maybe a miracle will happen and I will actually get a teaching position!
Maya seems to be doing well at school, but I can't get her to talk about what she is doing she says, "she doesn't remember" :) I also have added a few new journals to my shop and a few new prints of paintings that have sold. Here are a few of the journals.


Koi Journal


Ephraim Journal - named after the little town we stayed at in Door County a couple weekends ago.


Apple Journal



Magnolia Journal

Tell me how "back to school" is going for all of you, if there is a back to school for you :)

aw! i love back to school.

while i'm not going back to school per se, the fact that i work at a large university gives me the chance to overhear plenty of conversations from nervous first-year students about their profs, TA's and textbook costs, and also has me stopping in (every) hallway to give directions to the somewhat (and the totally) lost souls.

it's kind of cute.. at least i can sympathize!

I wanna go back to school! I'm so jealous of all the kids in my neighborhood, boarding the bus every morning at 8:45am. Sigh.

Ephraim Journal is *gorgeous*! Love them all!

It's back to work for me, but seeing your daughter here so brings me back to my childhood! She is so cute.
