Well, I didn't really intend to take a whole week off of blogging, but the last week of school was WAY busier than I had anticipated! Between finishing report cards and meetings, my evenings flew by and I didn't even give blogging a second thought.
-Last Thursday the 3rd grade teacher and I planned a field day at a local park for our classes. It was a wonderful day and the kids had a blast. We played lots of games, and in the end let them have a water balloon fight. Needless to say, my whole class ran right for me once we blew the whistle, and completely soaked me to the bone. Even in our warm desert heat, I was still damp when I got home 4 hours later. I truly hate being in wet clothes, but it was well worth it.
-The school year officially ended on Friday. I still have to go into work on today and tomorrow to finish up some paperwork type things and pack up my room, but the hard part is done.
-Although I've been counting down the days until my summer vacation since February, the last day of school was really sad. Looking around our beautiful school campus and realizing it would be empty next year was really heartbreaking. It was also hard to say goodbye to so many kids and families that I know I probably won't see again.
-I haven't really shared much about my job situation for next year, and still don't feel as though I can share too many details, but I do have a teaching job. It's at a new private school in our same town. I'll be teaching 2nd grade again.
-I'll be busy packing for the next few days, but plan to be back to blogging some MUCH more regularity starting on Wednesday (my first official day of freedom).
