I don't think I've posted for almost a month. To my faithful followers, I am sincerely sorry. I have lots of irons in the fire, so to speak. Some of those things I can tell you about, but others I have to keep to myself a little longer.
We had the first round of state testing 2 weeks ago. In addition to that, the end of the quarter arrived, report cards were due, and Spring Break happened. Upon my return to school on Monday, I have to print awards for our awards day the next week. Normally, I would have a week to do so, but I'm headed out on Wednesday to Williamsburg with my kiddos for 3 days. Whew! We return on Friday night at midnight, I have an alumni award luncheon on Saturday morning and then go back to normal routine. Add in there that there are only 20 days - yep, 20 - until state testing! I've yet to finish the last 2 social studies units, so there is just a tad bit of stress in my life. My husband and I are moving in June so we are in the process of finding a new home as well. If I stop and really think about what is going on in my life, I may just crawl in the bed and pull the covers over my head. So, to blog on a regular basis, is a little overwhelming. But, thanks to Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade I have something to offer you today. Enter the April Currently.
*I am limited to the amount of channels that I get on the television at the cabin at the beach, so I watch what I can, when I can. Terrible movie!
*Loving life at the beach this week. Technically, I'm a little drive from the beach, but the cabin sits on the dock of a creek and I have enjoyed every minute of it. We went to the beach one day and I was dressed in a down coat, jeans, and a sweater. Not exactly beach weather, so my little creek dock was perfect.
*Thinking this week has gone by terribly fast. Don't all breaks? I'm not ready to go back.
*Wanting the year to end, not because I'm ready to say goodbye to my kids, but I'm ready to say hello to new opportunities. I can't talk about them yet, but I will soon.
*Needing to prepare for Williamsburg. I'm not even remotely ready, but will be. Say a prayer as I board a bus Wednesday morning at 6:45 and spend the next 3 days in confined places with 56 other people.
*Advice: Always be open to new opportunities. Whether they be moving grade levels, schools, or areas of your personal life. They will cause you stress, yes, but will make you grow tremendously.
I'm linking up with Farley today!
