Out of the mouths of babes...
And yes, indeed, it is frighteningly empty.
The massive amount of artwork is all in the gym - I spent about 10 hours (!!!) setting it all up today with some fabulous help from the high school art teacher, who had her own students' work to display but still helped with mine; from my likely replacement who is hoping it will all be resolved; from my former student teacher and favorite sub; and from a number of students, who all gave time and energy truly above and beyond my wildest expectations, to help pull off my vision. I'll take pictures tomorrow.
Now I'm going to relax on the couch and watch The Bachelorette, my brainlessly trashy guilty pleasure for the overtired art teacher.
