I started the National Writing Project Summer Institute today, and am so tired, I can barely move!! I’m still trying to process everything that we did so I can put some of the ideas into practice when school starts (OMG…did I REALLY just jinx myself about school starting???). Anyway, in this sea of ideas, I really do feel like I’m drowning…is that even possible on the first day? Our schedule has been reduced to 8 days from 20 due to the NWP budget cuts, but I’m not complaining. I doubt I could handle 20 days if I’m this tired after only one!! haha…

So, I’m taking my munchkin, LilyBell, to bed, reading a story, and then I’m crashing! Until tomorrow, and it’s back to drinking the NWP Kool-Aid!
