Two weeks completed!

Download word art here

Well, we have finished the second week of summer school and I am so glad!  We're headed to Gatlinburg for our annual 4th of July trip on Thursday, so I won't be working on Friday.  We have Monday and Tuesday off for the holiday, so that means only 17 more days to go!

I'm going to miss the Gatlinburg fireworks this year, but I'll be there for the midnight parade and we we plan to make it back to Memphis in time to watch the fireworks over the Mississippi River. It won't be the same, but it will still be fun!

I'm trying to come up with an end of summer trip for once summer school ends.  I'll have about 10 days to play.  So far, I've run two different ideas by OCG and he isn't thrilled about either one of them.  LOL!  It's not because he thinks they are bad ideas, but because he thinks we'll be "rushed".

So, do you guys have any fun ideas on places we could/should go?  I just want to go somewhere and take lots of pretty pictures during the day and have some serious adult beverages in the evening.  LOL!

I had a chance to Facetime with Sebastian on Tuesday!  He's doing well and seems so happy.  Of course, I made him tell me that I'm still his favorite teacher.  LOL!

One week down.....

     So, I managed to complete the first week of teaching the summer learning academy and if you add up all the hours that we actually had AC in the building it might equal one day.  It might, but I doubt it!

23 more days to go!  Actually, I know that I'll miss one day so I only have 22 more days.  LOL!

I'm tired!

Monday was the first day of summer school.  I had 9 students in my class.  I've been told to expect more as the week goes by.  I don't know what I'll do with more kids when this one day has worm me out completely!

What have I gotten myself into?

***Come back tomorrow for the "you" version of this word art, because we've all got that one friend...***

OK, so signing up to teach summer school probably wasn't the best idea in the world!  We were told that we would start June 12th and work from 8 - 3.  Then they came out and said keep the 2nd and 5th open for training.  Then they said you'll also need to go to training on the 9th.  Then they said you'll actually need to work the whole week of June 5th.  Then they said you'll be working from 7:45 to 3:30. 

 Then, just to pour salt on our wounds, we found out that our little thirty minutes lunch breaks will be unpaid breaks.  You know those thirty minutes breaks that are actually more like ten to fifteen minute brakes, (IF YOU'RE LUCKY!) because you're always being called to do something during that time.

THEN, I'm not one of the lucky people who gets to use their own class room.  My whole hall is shut down for the summer and even though I'm going to have a Kindergarten class, I'll be in one of the second grade rooms.  The teachers who class rooms are being used were all told to KEEP things on up on the walls and bulletin boards.  Most teachers very happily did this because it was less work for them at the end of the year.  Guess who is using a room where the teacher decided to take everything down except for their torn bulletin paper........ME!!!

I just keep telling myself to relax and think about the extra money and the fall break and birthday vacations that it will pay for.....it's not working right now, but I keep trying.....

We have power!

***I think I've corrected the download link.  Remember that you can also right click and save the image!***

We made our daily stop by the house to pick up the mail and check on things.  We hadn't been in the place but a couple of seconds when I heard a sound and looked around trying to figure out what it was.  That was when I noticed there was a lamp on and screamed, "POWER!  We've got power!"

After three and a half days it was pretty exciting!
