After my daughter’s first day at school, Will, a parent from her class called and cried, “We have one in the books!” I had never heard that saying but now know that after the first full week of kindergarten, we have truly put one in the books. It was a week of highs and lows, adjustments and realizations. (“I am sad. I love my new teacher, but I miss my teacher from last year, too.” Don’t we all feel that way sometimes about the things in our lives?)
Thanks to everyone who participated in our first back-to-school extravaganza and to all of the great teachers who make our children excited to get up every morning!
We still have some back-to-school sweepstakes going and those will be announced in the coming days. If you haven’t entered, get to it!
There are still a few workshop spots left in Marfa. Plan your road trip and join us.
Got questions? Post a question for Alabama Chanin in the comments below, on our Facebook page, or at EcoSalon for next Friday’s column. Go ahead, ask anything…
The best part of the week for me (aside from surviving the first full week of kindergarten): our HEATH Ceramics collaboration was being photographed in my home and two dear friends – Cathy Bailey and Angie Mosier – were here to realize the images (see our styling table in the photo above).
Launching in November… stay tuned.
One “in the books” indeed!
