‘Twas the Night Before …

… the first day of school and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring … except maybe a mouse spider!

The children were all nestled all snug in their beds,

With visions of glow sticks dancing in their heads!


When what to my sleepy eyes did appear …

A printer out of ink and a message that read “ERROR.”

Before Momma, the teacher, went fast asleep in a flash,

She decided to take one last dash …

To the library for a view of the place


Where growth and learning would happen in the coming days.

If you are racing and last-minute planning on the eve of the 1st Day,

Take heart and know that everything will be O.K!


“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Mathew 5: 14-16

  1. What creativity! I needed the encouragement. School is two weeks away and my room has no furniture, no technology, and no curriculum. I am sure it will all come together the night before! I hope you have had a great start!
