Too Soon

I know I've been counting down to summer for a month (or more), but all of a sudden it's too soon. I cried last night and today at the awards ceremony and again tonight. I know part is just that I'm so TIRED, but I'm really going to miss these kids. Two years forms a real bond, and it's hard to let go.

The good thing is that Cindi and her husband are going to 5th grade, so the two of them will have half my class. I think they'll love them, and take care of them for me.

I'm of course looking forward to my free time. I challenged my chapter to a Book in a Month, along the lines of Nano, only you don't have to start with a new book, or even just work on one book. So far I have over a dozen people ready to play with me.

I'm also thinking about making a summer reading program for myself, you know, glom a certain kind of book each week. Maybe read Noodler books the first week, and historicals another, and Intrigues another, and writing books another. I just don't know if I read fast enough anymore for it to make much of a difference.

Still my favorite time of year....all the possibilities of summer in front of me.

HUGS Mary!!!! Two years is a long time to form bonds. I'm glad your friend will be taking over for half of them. :-)

I was able to put MOST of my kids with the teachers I wanted for them. That was a huge load off. There are still some I worry about, though.
