To say helloooooo & give my Top 5!
#1. 12 Days until schools out!
~When I googled searched school's out, this is the image that popped up. Oh yeah, I want to be driving this bus on June 10th!
This is my last year at the school I've been working at for five years. I teach the same students each year and I've had my 6th graders since they were in 2nd grade. I've watched them grow up and mature. Just yesterday I was telling one of my students, "I remember when you were little you would cry when you didn't get the answer right." My prayer is that I made a positive impact on their lives and they'll at least remember one thing I taught them. At 6th grade graduation I'll be the blubbery mess on isle three taking pictures of my daughter & my school kids.
~6 days until I jet off to the Miami coast line. I get to eat, drink, & spin with my friends for 4 days. I look forward to this trip each year and this year I'm even more excited. Instead of turning my boo-tay into hamburger helper, I decided to mix it up. I've signed up to listen to more lectures, learn bike repair, & even a kettlebell workshop. I'll still come back with a sore boo-tay, but that's ok, that bootay is going to look great in my new bathing suit.
#3. FOXy People
-Living in the Hampton Roads area you meet tons of people in the military. I get attached to them and then they leave me and go to another destination. I told John once, "If I meet another chick that is in the military, we-aint-gonna-be-friends!" Well I broke my vow and met a couple that I adore!!!!! We're like peas & carrots. I got the sad news that they'll be heading to California in July. The difference between other friends that have moved away and them, is that with these guys will be my friends for life. I love you Kelly & Chris!
"Bring on the tattoo gun!"
#4. Unexpected Surprises
-I received these flowers this week from someone that I never would have expected them from.
(No, not my husband or "G"...LOL...)
I've had a student in my class for two years and it's been a bumpy road. The two years have been up and down with letters, phone calls, & conferences and I often wonder if the parents know how much I care for their children and want the very best for them.
I'm heading up to my room, I turn the corner and mom hands me this beautiful bouquet of flowers and says, "thank you for everything you've done." Wow, it made my whole week. It's times like these that I've been blessed with my teaching job.
