Almost stepped on this little guy the other night.
Quick hailstorm while we were out at Dinner.
T-shirt on of my student designed, that I had him print up for Nick.
My baby stepped out of baby hood into the 3's today.
Jacks loves Thomas the train, so i had this huge Thomas the Train plan that involved these..
Coopers Program was today. I was so lucky to be able to work it out so I could go.
I have had some hard teaching years.
My first year teaching, was also my first year as a mom, in a new city, with no support system.
My second year I taught a FULL day of art at the middle school and a full day of Ceramics at the high school.
My third year, I was at the high school all day but I was teaching Ceramics and French.
Then I had Jacks, and Year Four, and Year Five, weren't bad.
I kind of wish I had skipped year six completely though.
At the end of the very first day of school this year, I was sitting in my room, exhausted, hurting, and crying. My friend Kolten was there and I told him I wasn't sure if I would be able to do this. You know, make it all the way to May.
Then fast forward 1 month, to when I fell, and I was once again exhausted, hurting, and crying. May felt so far away.
After the 5 weeks I missed second quarter, the light at the end of the tunnel.....May, may as well have been in Timbuktu.
On the hardest days of the year "just make it to May" is all I think, what I held onto.
Today is May.....now I just have to remember to keep breathing for 3 more weeks.
Hello May. Glad you are here.
I am working on a very awesome project right now. I hope to have it "announce worthy" by the end of the week.
Today, my school has a very special School activity day, and I brought Both boys so they could be involved. We had to spend the first bit of the morning with my First period class, and the boys had so much fun chasing "J" and "C" around, (and beating them up)
