I've been full-on working on getting my classroom ready for the start of school. Next Thursday is our Back to School Night, so the pressure's on. I'm still not at all sure how or what I'll be teaching this coming year -- but I did get my desk cleaned out!
Bruce and I are still chipping away at cleaning things up the area around the house -- I'm beginning to think that what we need is a crew of three strong workers to put in three hours a day. For the rest of their/our lives. No matter how much we rake, haul, prune, shovel, water, weed and wack there's always so much more. Well, onward ho!
Bruce and the snake left for the rock wall down the road where we released the other three snakes and was back home again ten minutes later with the empty bucket.
Then he went back to leaf blowing and I finished cleaning out that kennel.
I'm hoping that this is the last of the clutch that I assume hatched out here. I will say, though, that we have a lot fewer mice in the barn this summer...
