Summer is Here!
|See how sweet they are!|
I had some really sweet, smart, great kids this year (plus a few stinkers, as always) - and we had a fun, special last day together, but I was not sad in the least to put them on their busses and wave goodbye. It was just a hard year. Bold, italics, underscore. There were many, many days where I did not know how I was going to get myself through another day of work, and there were tears over it - it wasn't the kiddos... just other stuff. I've never been ready to leave school on the last day when they release us at 1:30.... until this year. My stuff was packed and I was waiting by the door, literally. I will of course be hopeful that next year will be different, and by fall I will have a better outlook on everything - but I just want to get all thoughts of work out of my head and I think this vacation will be a nice way to just totally separate myself from the past 10 months, and put me in happy-summer-mode.
I'm ready to put the past behind me and move on to the 3 reasons I became a teacher (June, July, and August!)
