11:12(ish) today, and here is the end of music class. no more students, they are on to the next activity. i used to pack up the room as fast as i possibly could, racing to beat my best time. lately i move at a more leisurely pace. i used to take great care in alternating dark blue, light blue, purple mats in a specific pattern but now I let the cards fall as they may. occasionally i have a helper fold up the mats but not this morning. i pause my clean up process to take this photo. the goodbye song keeps playing in my head.
