1 Down

The last day of school was Tuesday. I'll be honest. I had been longing for May 24th for a few weeks, no, a few months now. I went to school on Tuesday thinking, "You know? I'm not going to use my teacher voice one time today. I'm going to be the nicest teacher ever, so they'll be sure and miss me a whole lot this summer."

I was definitely using the voice by about 8:15.

But you know, those 4 boys that my yelling teacher voice was directed at the most often, are the 4 boys that I will probably miss the most.

So here's to my 25 little loves, and to them becoming big bad 1st graders, and to 2 glorious months until my next batch.

By the way: In my little "Goodbye. I'll miss you guys. I'm so proud of you. I'll never forget you guys since you were my first class ever. End of the year" speech, I realized that my kids had no idea that I was a first year teacher. They hadn't even realized that I had no idea what I was doing the majority of the year. I pulled a major fast one - just another perk of teaching 5-year-olds.

I love you, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day! I pretty much have the best mom imaginable. I didn't, however, get to spend this special day with her; because she was busy spending the day in Texas, watching her beloved Yanks play the Rangers. All in all, I guess it's for the best. She spent her day doing her favorite thing, with her second favorite child. (Grant went with her.)

I love you, Mom. Thanks for being so great. BFF

(Mom came over to Zambia herself, to pick me up and drag me home. Having her there with me is one of my fondest memories to date.)
(THE most calm, cool, and collected mother of the bride EVER.)

*Bonus* I have TWO great mothers now...
Love you, Sass.
