No…No…No! It’s not easy being green. It’s especially hard when you’ve been black and blue for years and H actually bleeds purple and gold – but that’s another story. 😉
H transferring to a new school at this late date has not been all fun and games. A shorter twenty-six mile trip which takes more than an hour to drive, weaving in and out of bumper-to-bumper tourist traffic six months out of the school year is not the upside of this unforeseen job transfer.
A new set of students, a new set of parents, and a new set of rules is what he has to deal with. It takes more than a year, but a year is all he has to prove he and his students can get the job done. And I have faith – lots of it!
So what do you do? I suck it up, stand beside him, alter those green and black uniforms, replace buttons and zippers and that scraggly sequined trim – I won’t say tacky because it is what it is – and we both persevere.
