It's July. I knew I needed to take advantage of abnormal weather without humidity, so I got up early yesterday and wrote, wrote, wrote, so that I could head to the beach in the afternoon during high tide.
And we play da few hours of volleyball and got our a##es handed to us by two 40 year olds who really knew what they were doing. Howard and Alisha joined us with their kids and, in summary, we simply soaked in the rays until I told everyone I was becoming a lobster and needed cover.
I told them it will catch up to them. It has to.
So, today, we kick of another week of Young Adult Literacy Labs, this time another round of Little Labs and Novels, with the addition of Poetry & Plays to replace Sports Writing. We have a full crowd coming in and are experimenting with scholarships for relocated youth who are too young to do Ubuntu - we are enrolling them in other literacy labs to continue countering literacy loss during the summer months.
All weekend, I've been getting reports from my teachers sharing their excitement for the work we're doing - It's all love!
Now, fingers crossed - let's hope the paper work this week is not as extreme as the last three!
