We were out of school all last week. On Thursday and Friday, the teachers had to report, but the kids missed ALL WEEK! And, crazily, we don't have to make it up because we were in a state of emergency. Isn't that insane? This has been the craziest weather year EVERRR! Thankfully, everyone is back in the swing of things. My poor, bedraggled high school teaching friends got their EOCs given (or are in the process), so we are moving forward.
Somehow, it is all ready Wednesday, and I feel like I just got back to Nashville. This past weekend SJ graduated with her Masters from UK. Woot woot. She is super pumped, bc now she can focus on the wedding. She also got a JOB for her 25th birthday, so she can rest easy and get pumped for the nuptials. Sunday was a wonderful Mother's Day, complete with the whole fam (plus some extended fam visiting from HONG KONG!). It was perfect, and my cousins brought presents from their recent trip to Europe. I got a precious Harrod's apron (must write that Thank you note!).
This week has been a little lackluster. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I am definitely a little down. I just feel like I haven't really improved that much since the beginning of the year. I still have kids just act crazo, and it makes me sad. Mostly, I think I've been worrying about next year and realizing that my own classroom will soon be a reality. I try to psych myself up and pray a LOT, but I still worry. What if I am just awful and they don't learn anything? What if my kids hate me? Can I keep my school's high expectations? What if the classroom is chaos? Oh me, oh my. I just don't want to disappoint anyone. whoosh... breathe in, breathe out. It will all be okay. It will all be okay.
Hope you're having a good week and all ready looking towards the weekend. I have LL's prom and my first wedding of wedding season, so I'm super pumped. Have a good day!
