They fell into an easy rhythm. Them, alone, doing their own thing? That was the definition of simplicity.

Rachael had always felt a sense of ownership toward Lewis. He was hers, he always had been. They had both lost a parent, and they’d grown up playing on their front lawns together just outside of their townhouse as children.

narrated by: Bekah Grimsley

Spring fever has hit the halls like a brick, I have to admit that I’m suffering from it as well. It’s just been a long year of hormones, relationships, crushes, and rejection. I am looking forward to summer break, though regretfully I will spend it with Willa and her tantrums.

Student Enrollment

narrated by Lucy

We are about to pass the torch of our large Grade 5 kids over to Bekah at the High School. These seven students are going to become the majority of the students in the building, and she has no idea what she’s in for. She thinks I’m a saint for being able to do these lower levels, and I feel the same for her with the hormone driven high schoolers.

I will miss a few of the students though, and I know I’ll be checking in on them through Bekah to see how they are adjusting. Lewis and Rachael are two of those students.
