summer is a'coming...

yesterday was  our 5th annual “tea for teachers”. my kids invite all their teachers to an end of the year tea at our house. last year, we included some neighbors and their kids and their kids’ teachers too. it is a fun time to get together with neighbors and great teachers...

but i digress, because the point of this entry is that I AM DONE for the school year. i heaved this HUGE sigh of relief when the last dish was washed and the last table cleaned off. it was literally like this weight was lifted off of my shoulders. there is NO MORE...

parties, showers, teas for teachers

Bible study lessons for sundays for college students, or friday morning breakfast/crafts/games/lessons for middle school girls

school PTO newsletter to design, correct (and there are always corrections to be made), send to printers, proof, get 1000 printed, and distribute 20 per teacher box every other thursday

no class field trips, notes to sign, money to send in, projects to have done, spelling words to call out, stories to edit, tests to quiz someone on, math questions that i can’t answer, choral concerts, speech meetings

6 meals to make (3 breakfasts, 3 lunches) all done by 6:30 a.m.

3 morning kid deliveries, maxx at one time for early morning patrols, rosie at regular school time, and millie 2 hours later to middle school

dinner, bath, bedtime rush of time and someone forgetting that they needed to take dessert for the WHOLE 4th grade grade level the next day and didn’t tell me until 9:00 p.m. the night before (actual event)

schedules so crammed full that i have to print it off the computer for the day so i know where and when everyone has to be at a certain time.

NO MORE OF ALL THAT- good bye for a few months (too few). 

summer is MY lifesaver, MY sanity, MY way to relax...

welcome summer, welcome old friend, stay a while with me, PLEASE!

scroll though the photos for the table centerpieces from the tea yesterday. if one could be infected with cuteness, then i must have missed getting the immunization shot because i have CUTE running in my blood and there is NO known cure...
