Hypergraphia is a condition that causes people to transcribe their thoughts uncontrollably. I don't suffer from it in the clinical sense, but I may be borderline. My blog is the cyber-wall where I spray paint my thoughts for all to see. By the way, if you came here directly through blogger --if your page has no yellow frames and no pretty pic of me in the top left corner -- you may want to visit my main site at www.hypergraffiti.com, where you can read this blog and much much more.


I'm Trudy Morgan-Cole, a writer from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. My books include "The Violent Friendship of Esther Johnson," "Esther: A Story of Courage," and "Deborah and Barak." I'm also a married mom of two, a teacher in an adult-ed program, and a Christian of the Seventh-day Adventist kind. I blog about writing, reading, parenting, teaching, spirituality, and shiny things that catch my eye.

Back to School continued...

Here, as promised, are the obligatory and oh-so-cute back-to-school kid pics. Christopher was off to Grade Three and Emma to Grade One this morning. Both seemed to have had a good day, although Emma did not get the teacher she was hoping for (her last year's Kindergarten teacher is doing Gr. 1 this year and Emma naturally wanted to be in her class) nor is her best friend in her class -- however she is good friends with many of the girls who are in her group and seems to have adapted well already.

After school we met Grammy and Grampa at Moo Moo's for the traditional first-day-of-school ice cream and trip to Bannerman Park. It's a beautiful day, and it's been a very enjoyable one for us all, but I will confess to being completely wiped out. I always find the first few days of teaching to be really, really high energy as I am trying to kick off all the new classes and get to know the new students (while still keeping the old ones happy). I love every
minute of it and I have some great groups this year but it is very tiring, especially when combined with all the back-to-school parenting jobs.

So I'm very happy that today is Friday and that for once, I get to go to church tomorrow and do nothing except sit there and hope to be blessed -- I am not teaching the children's class, nor playing the piano, nor even preaching the sermon. And my parents have invited us up to their place for lunch. God bless them. By Monday I should be ready and even eager to throw myself into the fray again!!
