Almost There

Tomorrow starts summer vacation. I am so excited to have a few weeks off to rest, relax, and regroup. The students' last day was yesterday and today we go back for a couple of hours of inservice and to close down our classrooms. We will be spending most of the break down in Central Arkansas. Hubby is taking two summer classes the first term and then will have a little break, too. We will also have about a 10-day vacation thrown in there.

These past several weeks have been such a whirlwind. The end of school is crazy for anybody, but particularly so for a special education teacher. In my district, we have to have a conference with every student's family to discuss their progress over the past year and to make a plan for the upcoming year between Spring Break and the end of the year. Throw in the state testing, the testing for students that are English Language Learners, and testing the incoming kindergartners that may need special education services and that makes us very busy people. But, that is all done! Hubby and I also made it through our graduate classes for the semester with 2 A's each!

I'm looking forward to spending hours in the pool, reading some books, and catching up with friends. I hope everyone has a peaceful summer!
