Schools Out For Summer


So I am happy to say that "Schools Out For Summer!"
Yes, today is my last day of school for the 2007 - 2008 school year. Yesterday my class had their Kindergarten Graduation and it was oh so cute!! They were so nervous to come out in their caps and gowns and stand infront of all their parents, grandparents,and friends.. Thankfully the
"ice was broken" when 2 of my kids fell of of their chairs as they sat down. Everyone started to laugh and they settled right in.
They sang songs(ABC Rock by Greg & Steve: it was too cute) and received their diploma's as everyone cheered them on! At the end of every year I say how this class was so special and that I will miss them dearly and that next year my class won't be as great! I get very attached to my class - I mean I see them every day, all day, every week, each month as the days go by throughout the year. We laugh, we cry, sometimes I yell(as teachers sometimes do). But all in all I will truly miss my rugrats next year.. I will hold a special place in my heart for this years class.. Here is a poem I put in their end of the year gifts - I thought it was sweet poem and really meaningful!
It's time to say good-bye
Our year has come to an end.
I've made more cherished memories and many more new friends.
I've watched your child learn and grow
and change from day to day.
I hope that all the things we've done
Have helped in some small way.
So it's with happy memories
I send them out the door,
With great hop and expectations
for what next year holds in store.

So like I said before schools out for summer - but that doesn't mean I'm off.. I have next week off and then I begin Summer Camp at my school. I am the Director of the camp! I have created a seven week long program for the students - so that will keep me busy every morning. I also babysit a 7 and 10 year old Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays after camp - and I tutor on Tuesdays & Thursdays after camp.. Some summer vacation huh?... May August come quicly so I can really enjoy some of the summer...

The real question is, what do you do in the summertime? I almost went back to school to be a teacher just so I could have the summers off!
