Sunday Post – June 8

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the Caffeinated Reviewer . It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and things you’ve received. The rules are here: The Sunday Post.

And, just like that, the school year is OVER! I’m free! This week actually went by pretty quickly, all told. There were moments I was convinced I couldn’t make it, but by Wednesday things were looking good. I successfully had my first ice cream party for the kids, and it wasn’t the disaster I’d always imagined. Then, on Friday, I managed to keep them all engaged long enough to get through the half day, and I was done. I am so relieved because this year has been tough. It was a nice class and there weren’t a lot of behavior problems, but they were so talkative and so high energy, that it took a lot out of me. Now, I have a week off, then an educational conference, then my summer really gets going.

Yesterday, I got to see the stage musical of School of Rock, which was a lot of fun. The kids were amazingly talented. They were so good on their instruments, and one of the kids has only been playing for two years! They blew me away.

I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done this week. I was tired after school and one day, I actually forgot my book at school. I also started writing a new story, so that’s what I worked on after work instead of reading. But now, I have long summer days ahead to catch up.
