Don't Walk, Mosey (lessons from the South)

July 25, 2012 by Bill Ivey

So far, it's been the kind of summer most people assume teachers spend. Mornings consist of waking up when my body tells me to, relaxing and reading over breakfast, eventually going out on a run, and finally getting ready for the rest of the day. My family is on roughly the same schedule, and the time together is beyond wonderful. The rest of the day? Well, most of our extended family live within a two-hour drive, so we have been seeing a lot of them. It's a pace that agrees with me, and I feel more rested and refreshed than I have in several years.
