Vacation week coming to an end...

Today has been my last day of vacation. Okay, so that's not totally accurate. I still have the whole weekend before I have to go back to work. But it's my last day off that I would usually be at work.

I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped, but I did do some stuff. B-dog had blood work. I exchanged our broken cable box. I finished the start of a "family album". (It looks pretty good, if I do say so myself...) I made lemon chicken rice soup. Today was gorgeous out, so I hung out outside with the dogs and read a book. I didn't read nearly enough this break. I watched far too much tv. I took naps. ahhhh.

I'm just trying not to think about how I have to go back to work in two days. *sigh* I know I shouldn't complain- how many people get a scheduled week off in the middle of April? But I just need this year to be over. a good thing about being a middle school teacher is you get to start over in September.

Forty-one school days left until summer break. Two weeks until our state testing. So I'm hoping the next two weeks will be easy (test prep) and then I have a unit I often do at the end of the year. I have a final project for the last few weeks, but I have to decide if this group can handle it... I'm not convinced...

We're supposed to have great weather this weekend so I'm hoping III and I can do something outside. Maybe go into the city.

Happy weekend!

I love the end of the school year...LOVE it. It's the number one thing I miss most about teaching. It's not just about the summer, but the fresh start in the fall. I dig that. I hope you enjoy what's left of your break!

I LOVE SPRING BREAK!!! We had ours in March and now I am on a six week spring break...long story, you'll have to check my blog. The end of the year is the best...it is a great feeling to know you will be able to start over! I love how some kids can handle projects and other years you know that the group wouldn't be able to! Gotta love those middle school kids!
