Open House Night @leffingwellschool The 4th graders (& Lore) did an excellent job with their square dancing! Lorelei has made huge improvements over the last year and her hard work has definitely shown tonight! (It helps that she has an amazing teacher !) Once my finals are over I will try to post a video to embarrass Lore further #openhouse#fourthgrade#gate#almostsummer
123,798 = approximate number of times my class told me it was the last FULL Wednesday of third grade.
123,799 = approximate number of times I reminded them that we are still in school and have things to learn this week
Other lasts mentioned today:
"it's the last day the cafeteria will make chicken sandwiches."
"It's last full week I have to wear this jumper."
"It's the last day of 3rd grade math centers."
"Its the last time we will have lunch bunch as third graders."
Honestly, at first, I was somewhere between excited to countdown with them and also trying to keep them engaged for the next week with hardly any "special" end of the year events...for some reason we did those last week ♀️
It got me thinking about lasts. The last time I went for a run as a consequence. The last time I said no to a community of support. The last day I wasn’t not engaged to my best friend. My first last day of school as a teacher. .
My kiddos are so right, lasts should be talked about (and talked and talked and talked about 🤪) and processed through, but GIRL, when you get out the other side ENJOY the heck out of where you were and toast where you are headed! You might not even realize how freaking monumental today is, but you are just one decision away from that dream
My next post will probably be one of them eating ice cream ♀️ Isla had field day at her school today, and while Gigi didn’t appreciate me waking her up from her nap to stand in the heat for an hour (aka she whined and pulled my arm basically the whole time ) she was willing to give a little smile for a sno cone. These end of the year events are fun, but I am SO ready for summer and a laid back schedule. Anyone else?! 🤪
