Getting ready

We're moving to the Atlanta area next week so I can start my new job at the end of the month.

The company for which I'll be working has been tremendously helpful in handling our move. They're sending movers to pack up and transport all of our things and one of our cars.

That certainly does alleviate some of the headache of moving, but the process still isn't entirely stress-free. 

I'll be glad when it's all over.

All praises to teachers

I went with the kid's class to Tibet-Butler Preserve today, and came away not with new knowledge about nature but with even more respect for teachers (and as the daughter of a teacher, my respect level was already pretty doggone high).

Even though each child had a parent present ostensibly to keep everything under control, the energy and noise levels were incredibly high. Frustratingly high, in fact. Somehow, though, the preschool teachers managed to enforce order and, when warranted, encourage silence with a minimum of fuss. It was amazing.

They have skill sets I don't possess. It would be difficult for me to keep that number of children from accidentally maiming themselves each day.

Power and respect to them. They should be paid more highly.
