    This has been a rough week in my class. My kids are loco! :eek: I know that they are so excited and tired from afterschool activities, but seriously, this is crazy (or at least they are driving me crazy!)! :woot:

    Anyone else glad they made it through this week?

    MEEEEEE! I am! My kindergartners are crazy, too! It's difficult to get through anything lately.

    We had an early release day today (2 hours early), but I felt like I put in a full day (and then some). SOOO glad it's Friday!

    We went to The Nutcracker Ballet today (90 mile round trip) then to the double decker McDonald's. It was a great day to end a very busy week.

    Thank goodness it wasn't just my class. I was starting to think I had lost "it" - they were crazed this week. Due to transfers, moves, etc. I am getting new students and will have 19 boys and 6 girls next semester! I don't think it is getting any better!:eek:

    Yes, such a nightmarish week we all had. THIS week I get to look forward to an unannounced observation. How cruel!!! I know they're coming, I just don't know when.

    I cant believe I made it! I still have 3 more days and we are in the middle of a big snow! So now I am thinking please cancel school monday, PLEASE!! We actually have a field trip Monday but it will probably be cancelled so I have to come up with activities because the kids are mentally drained. AHHHHH Oh, no shopping done and no baking and inlaws coming in. Can we all say CALGONE take me away!

    I have 19 boys and 4 girls. I'd rather teach boys any day. Our last day before the holiday break is next Wednesday. It will be crazy. On top of it all we just got hit by a huge snow storm that left 18" of snow so we may be off on Monday.
