It has been one of those weeks...rainy, hectic, exhausting...a week that appeared to be never ending. Today was definitely the icing on the cake with the first torrential rain storm of the season. I know, who cares about a little storm, right (How I Met Your Mother episode anyone?!)? Let me just tell you that this one was seriously insane though as the sky got crazy dark (think midnight black) and it rained HARD, so much so that my umbrella started leaking.
Lighting. More HERE.
The worst of it though was that the heaviest rainfall was around lunch when the kids and I had to walk from our classroom to the lunch hall with a portion of the walk uncovered. I have 23 students and at one point had to take them three at a time under my umbrella up stairs to get them to a protected awning. Once I'd sent my kids to safety, it didn't stop as more kids showed up needing help. Thankfully more teachers arrived and an umbrella brigade was made for the kids to walk under. Then we did it all over again 20 minutes later when lunch ended. Awesome I tell you. By the end of it my whole backside, shoes, socks, everything was drenched. Luckily I still had three more hours of school left. :)
The week is over though and it is now Friday and with it comes my weekly P52 post. The theme for this week is things that grow. I won't whinge about the lack of time or lack of dry weather making photo taking totally impossible. It is all good. :)
Unfortunately I had to dig in the archives for the pictures this week. As I thought about this theme, I was struck by the passage of time. Somedays, like this week, time seems to go by ever so slowly. Then other times, like my 20s (which ends in June), seem to fly by very quickly. This blog, and all the blog hopping I've done recently, has really made me aware of wanting to capture all of the moments life has to offer. I want to capture the good, the bad, and the ugly. Thank you for joining me in this journey!
