Thanksgiving Break

Whew! How is it that sometimes the short weeks are the hardest and/or craziest??

Stupid full moon. My students were WIRED this week. I am so uber thankful we do not have school tomorrow! I'm not sure we would have made it! They have just been IN-SANE.

My student teacher has two weeks left. It will be super weird without her there, but I am really anxious to get my class back. I think that is a normal feeling to have. We put so much time and energy into our teaching that sharing the kids long-term in this way can be a challenge. Next week she is only teaching one subject (reading) and then everything is back to me.

I can't even tell you how very glad I am to have a few days to decompress. Seriously. I'm not even teaching the whole day and I'm just plumb worn out. I love my kids and my school but these friends come with a lot (and I mean A. LOT.) of baggage. It's that extra stuff that just makes it so hard sometimes.

Hopefully once the crazy/busy month of December ends and we have some time over the holidays, I will be more consistent with blogging again. It's weird because I feel like I've had much LESS to blog about since I haven't been teaching everything like usual. We've done lots of cool stuff but I haven't taken pictures or anything so I don't post them. Oh well.

I will try to be better about it because it's more fun to see pictures! :)

My girls do have school tomorrow (they are not impressed) and I have a chiro appointment early. Otherwise I plan to get my nails done, get my oil changed finally and then spend the rest of the day at home working. I actually have most of my lesson plans (except reading) planned out until winter break. I just need to review my plans and make sure I didn't overlook anything. I also have a little paperwork I need to do on kiddos who will be up for evaluation. It also won't hurt to get a bit ahead on grad school.

Then Thursday-Sunday are family time. Technically we have assignments due for grad school but we have an extension. I won't take the extension, I am going to do the best I can to get everything done tomorrow so I can just take a mental break and be with my family.
