Happy Friday, friends!
Yes, it is true.
Today was my last day.
We use a condensed calendar which means we have longer days (than most schools), and we are able to start in late August and dismiss in mid-May.
Kristi is very jealous of this condensed calendar thing.
Some could argue that I was rubbing it in.
But her response... LOL!
And just so we are clear...the condensed calendar results in less days without kids, and Kristi has sent me many e-mails/texts about her relaxing work days while I was teaching. So I think it all evens out.
Anyway, I've seen the countdowns.
I know some of you still have a few days left while others have A LOT. Yikes!
I thought this picture was appropriate for ALL of us--no matter where we are in the countdown.
Today was (thankfully) a half day.
It was Rodeo Day (think western themed Field Day because, well, we are a country school). I said good-bye to the best class I have ever had.
And then I came home and took a two hour nap.
P.S. Some thought I cried knowing the kind of class I will have next year. I promise that was not the case. Even though this week as I dealt with one student about having good manners, the first grade teacher was dealing with four students doing some not so nice talking with their fingers.
