The school is brand-new, including the library. Students are learning how to take care of the new building and showing respect to all things new, including their classmates!
I thought driving back and forth to Oklahoma City every day would be boring and unproductive. However, I've learned that reading books for two hours a day is a great way to spend my drive time! Of course, I'm not really reading with my eyes - the kids thought that wouldn't be a good idea - I'm reading with my ears! Listening to books on CD and on my iPod seems to be a good way to pass the time. I've already read To Kill A Mockingbird, and A Short History of Nearly Everything and just finished Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Next up is Bossypants!
Another benefit of driving early in the morning are the beautiful, soul-inspiring sunrises I see when I turn off Highway 51 onto I-35. I look forward to it every morning!
