Friday Fragments: End of Year Woes

I find myself wondering this week, why everyone cannot be happy for me when I am taking steps to be happy. I have always been supportive of others. I feel like the cheerleader who cheers her heart out at all the games and then has no one show up at the competition to cheer her on!

*****

End of grade tests are in.  Parent Brag Alert: My Boy scored in the 99th and 97 percentiles in Math and Reading respectively.  I am probably the only mom on earth whose response to that was, "Well, that doesn't leave much room for growth next year!" 

Seriously, I'm so proud of him!

My children had their final Chorus concert of the year last night. Again and Again I am blown away by the quality of the Arts programs at our Magnet school.  FANTABULOUS!

This is one of the songs they sang:

There are 9 days of school left. I *should* be able to do anything for 9 days. 

However:
  • A student told me yesterday I looked pregnant and should definitely have another baby!
  • They are redoing our HVAC system over the summer and we have to pack up and label every single thing in our rooms.
  • We got a new AP in March and our principal is leaving at the end of June. We feel sort of like the kids left home with no babysitter.

This year, these just might be the longest 9 days EVER!

Beach this weekend!!!!!!!!

Oh how I remember those "end of year" weeks when I was teaching. They are hectic for sure.

My son got out on tuesday and the whining has already started :) I can't imagine having to teach at the end of the year, I'm sure the students are delightful!

I'll cheer for you! You deserve happiness and I'm glad you're finding it!

I cannot wait for this school year to end. This middle school thing is kicking my butt!

Today is the last day of school for us. I'm excited and dreading it both as a mom. I can only imagine what the end of year is like for teachers.

I hope it all goes wonderfully for you and when school starts next year you wonder what you were stressing out about.

May you find many moments of peace this summer.

I hope you taught that kid a valuable lesson: never assume a woman is pregnant unless you see a head protruding from between her legs.
Hope the next 9 days are as easy as possible, considering...
AND...there are some people who just aren't going to be happy. Period. Don't live your life for them.

Last day of school here, and I for one am dreading it...but not wanting to dread it, know what I mean? I know that teachers don't feel that way, though! ;)

The end of the year thing can be a nightmare. Glad that your kid is doing well academically.

I hope like heck my principal stays forever; he is just the best.

The previous 2-3 weeks had been hellish for me at school, but last week was fine. I am feeling good about making it through the next seven school days, in terms of kids, but we got our contracts recently, and they do not have salaries on them! This is a scary time. I need the break!!

Good luck to you! :) (and don't get pregnant!haha)
