So tomorrow is my last day of the school year...WHOOOO HOOO!!! I am so excited. I had a fabulous class and wonderful parents...but it is time for summer vacation. I lost the kids around April & have been counting it down! 182 days is really WAY TOO MANY for 5 year olds!....well 30 year olds for that matter! I am also so excited b/c the guilt of passing my child off to a daycare can now subside for a little while. he is finally all mine:) You may need to remind me that this is a good thing a few weeks in...I'll try & refer back to this blog! We have lots planned including the beach...Alabama Adventure passes....the zoo...splash pad.....and pool time! I can't wait to get started! Being a teacher is a hard job.....I work long after 3:15....its stressful...underpaid....and under respected...however I love it and would never chose to do anything else. I feel its a calling. I love teaching 5 year olds and its not overwhelming to be in a room with 23 of them everyday for hours...some people would consider that a nightmare...but its right where I want to be. 5 year olds are really amazing little people and they are much smarter than we ever give them credit for and they love without boundaries.....I couldn't be surrounded by better company. I say all that to let you know... I lOVE MY JOB....but I also LOVE my summer vacation. Its a time to rest & replenish......then I am ready to jump in and do it all over again. So for the next few weeks...its just me & my favorite boys.....awe....summertime!
