OAAs..standardized tests.....Joe woke the kids up with "remember the 2nd a is for Awesome!" He is the one who started the ritual of sausage and coke for breakfast on OAA days....he did this while I was in China....so guess what the kids look forward to this time of year and these rituals. The sausage is cooking and they're happily bantering in sleepy voices. It makes think back to exam week at Denison. I loved the change in schedule and pace. The study days and reflection and review of what had been learned and if I got it I loved the chance to test myself.
I hope everyone has some awesome in their day and has some sort of ritual to kick off the day. And that is a little glimpse into our life today on Newark-Granville Road.
