And I bawled like a baby! This has been my best year. I have been able to do so much with this group and they have learned more and gone further than any other class I had. They were so eager and ready to learn. (Most of them, I had a couple of heel-draggers.) I'm sad that I won't have this group again, but looking forward to next year. The parents made me the most beautiful book. It's one of those hard-bound books you can make online. We did the play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" this year and I lost all the photos when my hard drive crashed. I asked parents to give me any they had on a CD and didn't get any- now I know why! (They gave me CD's with the book.) It was so beautiful. I wanted to make a similar book with the class and never had time. I couldn't have asked for a better gift. The moment I saw it I burst into tears!!! (I have been extra emotional lately though, and have cried a lot for various reasons, so I think I am extra-hormonal or something.) It was totally what I wanted and didn't know I needed or would get! Anyway, I'm sad it's over but looking forward to a new group next year.
