Well, yesterday was one of the longest days of my life, but now it's all finished. I was at school ALLLLLLL day, packing and doing my records. Luckily, my teaching assistant is a whiz at packing - she did most of it. I sat at my reading table with records and report cards and special ed reports spread all around me and got all that straightened out.
Then I had a little break - spent some time with a friend. Very relaxing. Just what the doctor ordered.
Then I went to the annual "End of the Year" get-together at Joe's "Older Than Dirt" bar. One of our teachers' parents owns it. Every year they give us free appetizers and we all drink and talk. It's fun. I ate an insane amount of bad-for-you food, and had one drink. But I was feeling a little woozy just from the long, long day, so I called it an evening pretty early.
So now I have a few days before summer school starts. Rachael has started drivers ed, Daniel is in football camp all this week, and Aaron has started swimming lessons. Joseph thinks he has found a job. Let's hope.
Now the REAL work begins: keeping 4 kids happy, busy, out of the kitchen, not too much time in front of the TV or the computer.......without going broke!
