Countdown: Days 2 & 1....Summer!!!

Hey yall!!!

Schoooooool's out for summer!!!!!


Yesterday was our last day of school. It was a bittersweet day for me, since I had to say goodbye for good to all my sweet littles. I cried...and cried....and cried.

I cried when a few of my sweeties brought me a couple of gifts.

I cried when the whole class presented me with a scrapbook they had made.

I cried when one of my little's dads told me how much a difference I had made in his child's life and gave me a big hug.

I cried when I had to hug each and every one of them goodbye.

Get the picture? I was quite the mess...

We have one day of postplanning on Monday, and then that's it! I will *officially* be unemployed, which is beyond scary. Fingers crossed that I will find something soon!

Okay, so here were our balloons for the last couple days of school.

Day 2

This guy said that we got extra recess! We had our end-of-the-year party planned for this day, so I knew they would need to run off all that sugar! Good planning on my part :) I'll post later with pictures from our party...we had a blast!

Day 1

Game day!

Again, this was strategically planned, as I knew that I would be packing up the room and needed the littles to entertain themselves.

We had a couple of guest readers that stopped by throughout the day, including the 25 year old brother of one of my students.

We also watched one of the Star Wars movies over the course of the 2 days. I officially became the best. teacher. ever.

Today, I treated myself to a little 'school's out' mani/pedi :)

The color is a little loud, but I love it!

I began the packing process, because we are moving in less than a week! I am majorly not at all freaking out...

Sooo....if you don't see much of me, you know why :)

Good luck to everyone's last few weeks of school! Hope they are as good as mine were!
