Welcome! Lenkaland shares my adventures in creative photography, raising two kids, writing, living with chronic illness, raising a daughter with dyslexia, and swimming with mermaids. Hope you have a nice stay!

She jumped up and down this morning.  "I am so excited!  I can't wait!"

She looked so grown up and so little all at the same time.  Ready for the stories.  What a good day!

As for my own class of kinder/first grade students, they are amazing children.  A very kind and creative bunch.  We should all have a great year.  Three days done, two to go in my epic work-week.  The strict 9pm bedtime is helping.  But I'm also carrying a lot of mountain climbing endurance.  Not that I've climbed any big mountains, but that persistance.  Almost there.  Almost . . .

Hey, Ian's birthday is Friday!  Two year old boy!  Maybe almost-there is a little optimistic :)

Off to get tomorrow's coffee ready to brew :)
