As the school year finishes up I find myself running as fast as I can.

Simultaneously, it feels as though I am running in place and it is all moving as slowly as Molasses,

And I wish that we were already on vacation.

So I thought I would end this school year with Aesop’s fable of

The Tortoise and the Hare
