Low on Kids this week

Zeke is gone to band camp in Wisconsin and Qatar is in AZ for the summer.  Cenny and JT are all I have this week.  Dinners will be smaller and maybe I can get something done this week in the house.  Of course I have class tonight and next Monday.Zeke texted that he is in the top band this year.  This camp takes 6th through 12th graders so being in the top band at the end of 8th grade was not expected.  Also he scored top on his theory test...he is a music genius at times. He is also in the Jazz band this week and playing piano for one of the band pieces.  He loves playing the piano and always comments that it is his first instrument and he only plays drums because piano is not a band instrument.

Have a great summer.

One year down

I finished all of my assignments and have turned them all in (great part about the internet and Moodle.)  I still have two classes, but those will be a breeze since I am done with the work part of class.  I like to be ahead so if something happens I have a cushion.  I have finished 10 classes and have about 10 to go.  Next year I am taking more than this year....I want to be done!!!!  So less work and more school in the future.

I have a grade in one of the classes and it is an A...I have A's in all of my classes so far.  I really do work my butt off in school....my house is a mess...so now that I am done with assignments I can get to cleaning my house...at last!!!!

A friend told me she is glad my house is a mess or she would be sure I was perfect....hahahahahaha that really is a LOL comment!

Shirts at Target- maybe I have them all now.


I went to Target the other day with mom and I picked out an apricot colored T-shirt.  Mom said, "That looks like what you always wear."  Ok she is correct, but it is getting to be warmer t-shirt weather, I hope soon anyway, so I bought it.  After getting home taking the tags off and washing it- I was putting away laundry only to discover I had the same shirt in the same color already in my closet.  Cenneidigh and I now have matching shirts.

Happy and Sad Day

School is out for the summer and I will really miss it.  I enjoyed the last few months at Ellis and know that this is what I want to do in the future.  I was thanked by everyone I worked with and really felt appreciated.

At times I felt like I was in a constant job interview doing this job, but then it hit me...that is how you should work everyday...always giving 100% plus...I think that is the way to help my kiddos reach their best in their educational pursuits.  The thinking that we are just babysitting(a common thing I hear from others) is not productive, everyone has the right to an education, even if they act like they don't want one, or care.

I have to say that this is true.  The other day I am working away and it hit me like a rock again.....I love this job and I will miss it.  Only one more year before I am student teaching and get my own room.  My principal said he would love to give me a reference when I am ready to look for a job.  Maybe I will be working for him again.
