Guys, I have been waiting for this day to get here because next week is a 3 day week!!! I am soooo ready for Easter break! Woo hoo! Yeah, the lack of snow days this winter are taking their tole on my… if you can’t tell;)
Here are my 5 highlights from this week.
1. Watching our high school boys soccer team win and remain undefeated for the season!
I finally was able to catch a soccer game last night. I coach the girl’s team and love watching a soccer game without having to be the coach. It’s SO AMAZING to be able to just watch the game and not dissect every little move. Our boys so far are off to a 5-0 start and are looking great this season!
2. Read a Great Book *Spoiler Alert*
I have been on a reading spree the past few weeks and ran across this amazing book about 2 sisters that survived Auschwitz. I have always had an interest WW2. It doesn’t matter what it has to do with WW2 because I’ll read it and enjoy it. This book was so amazing because the main character, Rena, was on the 1st train to Auschwitz and chronicles her journey through the concentration camp. Not only does she survive, but also saves her sister’s life. It was a very moving story but unlike most Holocaust books the end is fairly happy…at least as happy as it can be. It was also so captivating to read a book through the eyes such a strong courageous young woman. Definitely would recommend this book to anyone interested in this point in history.
3. Finished My 6th and FINAL Evaluation!!
So, if you are a teacher you know what a weight this is lifted off my shoulders. I feel like I can finally breathe easy now and not worry about anyone popping in to my class and pick apart my every little move. I understand the need for evaluations and absolutely agree we need to be evaluated, BUT, and this is a
big huge GINORMOUS BUT, it is absolutely ridiculous for a group of people sitting in the state capitol, who have never taught a group of 35 students, tell me the best way to do my job and when I don’t meet these expectations then I am inadequate. I welcome ANY law maker to hop in my room any given day and try to teach and hit every expectation while dealing with all the loveliness that comes along with high schoolers. But, I digress… I’ll hop off the soap box.
4. Wearing Sundresses
I bought this dress a few weeks ago at NY & Co and love it! I usually stay away from long dresses, but this one is amazing! I paired it with a blue jean jacket and brown belt at the waist. Wearing sundresses is a sign that summer is just around the corner!
5. Get to spend time with this little man Last weekend we got to help celebrate Lincoln’s, Logan’s little brother, 1st birthday, and this weekend they are coming up for a short trip! He is basically the most adorable one year old in the world…but really do you see that face!? Little babies make the world a happier place:)
Enjoy your Friday!
