Ahhhhh…. the bell rang at 2:30 and school is out until next year! I turned off my alarm clock and I have 12 glorious days home for #staycation! I’m truly grateful for some quiet time to do things that I love. Tomorrow I’ll be running some errands and getting final prep for Christmas done. I’m thankful today for my students and the joy that they bring me. They’ve been very good and I love heading into vacation on a high note. We had our little holiday party in our classroom today which was fantastic and we got to enjoy a movie together with the sixth grade team yesterday. I’m so happy that we were included in the field trip because a simple thing like going to a theater is not something that they often get to do. After school I attended the boys basketball game and then headed home. I’m glad that we have girls’ and boys’ teams once again as our students need something to get excited about and take pride in. It’s also a good incentive for those kids that typically are in trouble to make some better choices to stay off social suspension.
I’m home now and the girlies are all tucked in. I’ve got the candles lit, the tree on and I’m getting comfortable. As soon as the hubs gets up for work, I’m jumping in my nest with my books an Christmas music.
