I'm leaving my little boy. For a week!! I know in my head that he'll be fine and I know I will be too, but it's overwhelming to think about right now. I am going to Colorado (for the first time!) to grade AP European History exams. It will definitely feel so good to wrap my head around some history for awhile and to look at some student work... I'm really excited about that part, which is a little surprising I must admit. It's daunting, though, to think about how on earth I'm going to find time to pump 3-4 times a day through all that. It's unnerving to think about living in a dorm in an extra long bed.

I'm also freaking about leaving instructions, making sure we have enough food, what's going to happen when we mess with A's sleeping schedule (he's going to have to leave the house with M at 5:30!!) and will he go back on track when I am home?

By now, you've probably figured me out for the huge worrywart I am, and this is no exception. I know in my head it will all be fine--even the pumping part!--but it's still something over which I fret.

I really hope this isn't a one time opportunity for me, though. My district has no let me participate in the past because "it is too close to finals."
