I kicked off my first day of teaching in 6 years (at least with a full class of K-12 students) with a 5 mile race-walk. I'm thankful for the chance to get out my first day workout before my first day fatigue fully sank in.

Today, I set up my first classroom in 6 years. Though I share the classroom with other teachers so it is not entirely my own, it felt reminiscent of times ago. And, though, my original classroom days were rife with difficulties, I'm thankful for them and the kids who made me a better learner - not just a better a teacher.

Today, I woke up to rain, so I took advantage of the droplets and went for an 8 mile walk. Since I can no longer run, it was my "treat" to myself. Today, I'm thankful for this freak week of August rain. It brings out the kid in me.
