The One About The End of the Year

Well, hopefully you understand how busy the month of May is and aren't too harsh on me for not being around as much this month.  

Aside from the usual May craziness I am also preparing to move to a new school!  It'll be 1st Grade again so I won't have to change the name of this blog!  :)  However, I'd love to talk about it more but it's getting late and I'm fading fast.  Today was our last day of school (sorry if you're not out yet!) and I am exhausted.  You can read a bit more about the change at my personal blog here or just wait and I'll blog about it here in a day or so.

So, like I said, today was the last day of school.  But tomorrow is our school-wide party/day trip at a local water park.  We do this every year and it is always a great time for the teachers, kids, and families.  Possibly the best part is that every kid has to have a chaperone so we teachers get to go and hang out ourselves.  It is a lot of fun.  This year I'll be taking Braeden and Jackson again and they are stoked.  While I know a full day of fun in the sun chasing those two around will be a blast, I'm tired just thinking about it.

Ok, I'm going to have to sign off for now.  A brief update but I'll be back soon with more. I hope that your end of the year is going great and you can smell the sunscreen because summer vacation is so close!  

Thanks for hopping by!

The One About Reflections

Ok, so this reflections post should have come sooner.  A lot sooner.  But you know how May is.  Yikes.  Right?!  But that's a topic for another post.  On with the reflections.

So I made it!  The first year for this blog and the second for my family blog.  It was a lot of fun.  My favorite part of the challenge for this blog was sharing some of my favorite books.  Discussing them, sharing ideas, hopefully getting someone else hooked on a great book.  It was fun.  The posts were easy to come by, with the exception of X and Q, so that wasn't a problem at all.  

Another bonus was the interaction with others.  Reading the comments and responding to them was fun.  As I stated on my other blog, it is always fun to see just how far reaching the Internet can be and where people visit from.  I find it fascinating that bloggers from all around the world stop by to read my ramblings.  

The roughest part of the challenge, once again, is the fact that I never get around to visiting as many other blogs as I'd like to.  Bummer.  But I plan on continuing to visit and work my way through the list.  It's always fun to discover something new.

So, thanks for stopping by.  If you found me via the challenge I hope you enjoyed it, I know I have.  I look forward to reenergizing the blog and sharing more great things about what I consider to be the best job in the world.  Teaching.  First Grade!  Awesome!
