Summer, How Happy I Am That You Are Here!

As I packed up my final box and turned off the lights in my classroom on Friday, I shed a few tears (ok, more than a few) as I bid adieu one more school year.  I also shed many tears when I learned that my dear friend and co-teacher will be moving to 4th grade math and science, leaving me in our classroom alone...  I am so proud of her and know that she will do great things with the big kids, she is spreading her wings and moving on, which is what we all do when we grow up.  You see, when we started teaching together this year, she was very quiet and watched everything I did with love, I have never had anyone watch me teach and I didn't know how I was going to handle it.  We ended up never wanting to teach without each other and thought this would last forever, she taught her loves (math and science) and I taught mine (reading and social studies).  We were like an old married couple and our kids learned so much.  Denise would always compliment me and tell me that I was so smart and she could never believe how I knew so much about, well, so much.  I never realized that I knew what I did, but when someone tells you these things, you take notice.  I became a better teacher because of this and I will miss Denise so much.  What we thought would last forever, only lasted 10 months and we must shake off the dirt, pick ourselves up and move on.

So, back to summer and how wonderful it is that tomorrow I don't have to wake up to an alarm or even get out of my pj's!  This summer will be filled with college road trips (once again I find myself in this predicament, how quickly time flies), vacations that include hubby (he never gets time off to go with us), dance intensives, beach days, nothing to do days, and maybe some getting ready for school days (we will see..).  I love summer and I love it even more when I get to spend lazy days with my girls.  So, even though Big Miss is staying in Orlando because of her internship and summer classes, we will spend time together next week.  Little Miss and I will end our college road trip in Orlando and the three of us will soak up the Orlando sun and just have some mommy/daughter time.

Yes, summer, I am so happy that you are here!
