lordy what a year!

as a teacher
i know the toll that a
school year can take on you!
it sucks the life out of you...
trust me!

if you listen closely,
you can probably hear it!
draining like leaky balloon!

so when the big girl
brought her writing portfolio home
i should not have been surprised
to see the toll first grade has had
on her
{self portraits from fall and spring}

not quite as perky or happy in the second pic!
