The long weekend has ended, signaling to students, parents and school staff the start of the final countdown to the end of the school year (just twenty-four work days, plus one workshop day for me … and, for the record, I have NOT been counting days until now … I DO have the ability to practice self-control).

From now on, as each day dawns, our thoughts and dreams will be of sunshine, BBQ’s, beaches, campgrounds, hikes, bike rides, swimming and sitting around a fire pit looking up at the stars and across to the ones we love. We will be focusing our anticipation on friends, family and free time!

It will be difficult to keep focused on the days at hand when the future is so bright we gotta wear shades.

Yet, there is still so much to do.

There are end of year assignments, tests, exams, graduations, parties and farewells, for the students. There are vacation plans, spring gardening, kids schedules to manage, spring sports to taxi to, and encouragement to offer those students, for the parents.

There are curricular goals to achieve, marking to complete, exams to prepare, students to prepare for exams, exams to mark, report cards to prepare, meetings to be had, farewells and parties, then the final clean up for the school staff.

But, but …

the sun is shining,

the daylight stays longer,

we just want summer


As eager as we all are for all that summer may for each of us, we have a work to complete, and we must keep our focus on finishing it with eager willingness to complete it well.

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness
to it it may be matched by your completion of it,
according to your means.”

2 Corinthians 8:11
