I have to admit, I won’t be too sad to see January end.
After all of the busyness and activity of November and December, January is just boring. I guess this isn’t an entirely bad thing–everyone kind of needs a chance to recover from all of the activities and parties and everything else that accompanies the holiday season. But it’s also a huge let-down to go from so much activity to basically nothing.
Even my blog is a prime example of this. I’ve had almost nothing interesting to share this month. As a matter of fact, if it wasn’t for the church year commemorations, festivals, and feasts, I’m pretty sure it would have been pretty quiet here for the last month. Looking back over November and December, there were so many interesting things to share. Special school projects, field trips, other places we went, things we did, photos galore. There was plenty to write about–so much so, that I had multiple blog posts many days, just to make sure I shared it all!
But January? Silence. We’re back to work at school, but nothing photo worthy. We haven’t had any field trips this month; we really haven’t gone anywhere at all. And when you’re at home most of the time, there just aren’t as many pictures to share!
I’m hoping February may be a bit more interesting. I have one field trip planned, which is a good start. And there’s Valentine’s Day to look forward to, which the children love. And Leap Day is this year, which I suppose isn’t a big deal, but for some reason, really breaks up the monotony of winter, and will amuse the children, because they don’t remember the last February 29th too well.
I suppose I should appreciate this calm before, (and after!), the storm, as I know that February, and especially March, are going to be super busy. Just the same, though, January is such a blah month that I don’t think that we really even notice its end, it’s so unremarkable!
