It's hard to believe that another school year is over. This was a tough year in many ways and believe me when I say that I am glad that it is done. I am, however, missing the seniors already. This was probably one of my favorite classes that I have ever had. Out of the 14 seniors that graduated, I had taught 11 of them at one point or another. Most of those 11 I had even taught multiple times. Suffice it to say that, while I managed to hold it together pretty much during the ceremony, by the time I got home I was an emotional mess. I cried most of the night. Don't worry...I'm ok now.
School won't officially be over until this Friday. The 9-11th grade students have to come back for half-days this week to take their finals. Once they are finished I have to check all the teachers out so they can be done for the summer. My stress level has gone way, way down, though, and I am thankful for that.
How about a garden update:
Here are a couple of pictures of some recent projects I have finished:
I loved the purple one so much that I made one for myself. I haven't taken pictures of it yet so you will have to wait. I did use some of the yarn that I got from the Sheep and Wool Festival and it turned out well. :)
Here is my girl:
She is loving the warmer weather as much as I am!
I have officially been in my house for a year now! This weekend last year I was moving in. It's amazing the things that can happen in a year!
I am hoping to be back a little more regularly now that the school year is done. I won't be so tired at night and will have a little more ambition to write. For now, though, I have laundry to finish and a sleepy puppy to adore.
