    5 more days till we get out!

    How about you??







    By the way, a lovely K4 teacher taught me that version of the song many years ago. I need her sense of humor to get me through the chaos of the next week!

    Oh gosh. My GS has no school from the 20th on. I will have him as his mom goes to school and works. "How to keep a 5th Grader busy until Christmas?"

    Two more days. I'm hanging on my my fingernails. Tomorrow morning I'm taking them caroling around the neighborhood (we've been practicing for three weeks). Tomorrow afternoon is Spanish and a meeting. Friday is a gift exchange and cleaning the school (directors' idea-I'm sure the kids will be super focused on cleaning for 2 hours....). Friday afternoon can't come fast enough!!!!

    Two teaching days, then 3 days of exams.

    We're watching Sunday's weather very carefully-- the snowstorm that may or may not appear could have me in school VERY early (and briefly) on Christmas Eve to hand in my grades.

    We are having an "ice storm day" today so all I have left is 3 hours tomorrow, providing the ice melts. We had our party yesterday based on the forecast :)

    Seriously?? You have school on Christmas Eve?
    And how are the little darlings that day?
    Do they bounce off of the walls a little more than usual?

    I know Christmas is a religious holiday and all, but school on that day just wouldn't fly anywhere I know. It just seems disrespectful to families.

    I guess the issue of snow is what keeps so many schools in until nearly Christmas itself? January-March must be miserable in those parts of the country!
