this week i got the chance to partner again with the ARC to take 45 5th graders kayaking on the little ark river. i don’t have many pics because my camera was tucked safely away in the dry bag during the paddle and i was occupied helping to load and unload boats. i found it interesting that all the photos i have are of empty boats.
next week, i will spend my last two days at this school that i have so enjoyed for the past 3 years. these boats may be empty here, but i will remember all the laughs, smiles and the “hey, i’m good at this” that i heard that day and the previous 186 school days.
as i send them on to middle school and move on myself to a new building, this image of all these brightly colored, empty boats will hang with me.
