Or at least for a day. Today is my day off before the new school year and I am going to enjoy every minute of it. I am heading to lunch with a friend and hopefully I will get a Monday make it made later this afternoon.
I teach at a year round school, so school starts tomorrow working in our rooms for two days then kids come back July 8. I usually have July off but this year I changed grades and track. My break isn't until September. I can't wait to meet my new little ones.
Last week, was very emotional for me. I was leaving a grade I loved and some very good friends - but I love the idea of teaching Transitional Kinder. Our principal retired - we are getting one of old Assistant Principals back, love them both. I, think, too many changes along with packing up 7 years of teaching first grade - was way too much for me to handle. Then, add no break equals emotional overload. Hubby is flying in on Wednesday for the month, so I will get to spend time with him on the weekends. I have made a huge Honey Do List for him.
I made candy leis for each of my first graders with help from my mom and daughter in law. My kids loved them. It took a couple of evenings but worth it. I got the plastic tubing in Hawaii, so it made it really simple.
