3 more days.

Today I heard a teacher compare the end of school to the 9th month of pregnancy- everyone has had enough and wants the end to come. That seems accurate. We have school until Wednesday, and my kids have been done since last week. They are just WILD. Today, I just let them play in fun centers for a lot of the day, because they are over any type of work I could make them do. The teachers are all a little on edge as well. I haven't decided if the beginning of the year or end of the year is more stressful!

I am glad that I have completed my end of the year gift for my kids. I have been having them draw things, I have been taking pictures, laminating, and then this week the aid binded them into books for me. They are precious! It is so amazing to see how much they have grown throughout the year.

Tuesday is graduation. We are signing five songs, giving special awards and diplomas. So far the practices have been painful. A lot of my kids just will not stand still and sing. I do have a particularly rowdy class, but I hope that they do not stand out over the other five classes.

At this point, it is survival to the end. I have faith my kids and I can make it!


  1. YEah... I totally agree with that analogy! I wish it were possible to keep some structure the last few weeks but, it is NOT possible!!! I feel your pain.

  2. I remember the end of school....we were all always so distracted. I never really thought about how hard it would be for the teachers though!

    By the way, I have an award for you over here!
    Have a lovely weekend!
