Ya'll.. we have 5 more days of school. FIVE. Someone asked me this morning, and for real, I had stopped counting cuz I am just so damn busy right now. So I counted it out, and yelled.. "WOOHOO.. we have one more hand!!" Yah, I spend too much time with kids. Two more days with our students though really, as marks close Friday and we *shouldn't* be seeing students next week. Some teachers are funny though.. so we'll see how that goes.
Mostly we'll spend next week packing up stuff, and organizing our room. Except that next year, I won't be there. I haven't told the kids yet. I don't have the right words to tell them, and it will be better to wait until the fall anyhow. I feel a little melancholy about it right now. Of course I'll see them every day, but it won't quite be the same. I won't be able to celebrate their achievements and help them through their struggles.
Tuesday we have a picnic outside for lunch, and then our afternoon carnival. Wednesday is a half day, so really.. we only have a few more days. I am so ready for it to be over. I still don't have final confirmation on my summer school position, as the boy I would be working with might not be coming (his parents can't seem to commit either way), so I'm feeling a bit anxious. I hate not knowing things.
It's been a bit of a miserable week. On top of being super busy, we had our last PTO meeting tonight and some parents showed up trying to stir things up (where were they ALL YEAR LONG?) and it just put a bad end to a long day. Did I mention ONE. MORE. HAND?
