What I did do though was have a fantastic, and relaxing, Christmas Break with my family. In the end that's better than my initial plans anyway. Wouldn't you agree? Posts will get written. Items will get made. Hopefully the January Math Journals will get done ASAP. But until then I will continue to relax and enjoy my vacation.
Well, the entire 1 day I have left. Yep, I return to school on Wednesday. Yikes! Has the break flown by that quickly already? What will I do those first 3 days back? Oh, I mean, I need to check my lesson plans. No, just kidding, I do have
a slight idea of what to do plans for those days when the kids are totally crazy and still all jazzed up on Christmas Break, toys, and candy.
How has your break been? Do you return on Wednesday? Thursday? Or are you super lucky, like my wife, and have all the way until next Monday? Well, whenever you return I hope the remainder of your break is good. I hope you've enjoyed the time away from the classroom and have rested, relaxed, and rejuvenated yourself so you're ready to greet all of those little faces when they return in January.
One half of the year is gone. The 2nd half of the year is always so much fun as you begin to see the kids grow so quickly and they suddenly gain so much of the independence and skills you've been working on for the previous months.
But I'm rambling a bit here. Sorry. Maybe it's the late hour. I've got 20 minutes left until New Year's here. Everyone else in the house is asleep. I'm too stubborn though and always insist on staying up. Then about 5 minutes later I turn in. And again I'm rambling.
So, I think I'll just wish you a Happy New Year and sign off. I hope that 2013 is awesome for you and you have a wonderful and blessed 2nd half of the school year!
