5:37 p.m. I can’t believe how unrelenting this week has been at school. It’s Wednesday, and we’re midway through senior exams, high school assessments, senior recognition assemblies, and deadlines for myriad publications. Unrelenting. Tomorrow’s another long day/night, where an end to senior exams means an evening of awards and accolades. Everything builds to a climax on Friday during the Farewell Assembly, where our final slide show is presented, and the seniors leave high school for good and attend their long-anticipated senior picnic.
It’s all so very bittersweet. The rush of the week makes it a real challenge to slow down to enjoy any of it. We want the week to be over, but we don’t want to rush through the moments we’ve all been waiting for. Just an odd time all around.
It is Amy’s birthday, though, and we are happily in the middle of our celebrations. I took my semi-annual trip to the mall today to get her gifts (ho ho ho for the other time each year), and fortunately, I was able to get everything I I was looking for.
As I was strolling along on the various levels, I was struck by the way the sun was coming through the upper skylights. I snapped these two pictures to post for today’s my3*6*5.
With the exception of my thumb in the bottom of the second pic (I’ll have to crop that out a little later), I am happy with the job my Blackberry does in taking photos.
Off to celebrate Amy’s birthday at Red Robin (Yummmmmmm). 🙂
