Life is in a pretty normal pattern right now. It seems like nothing special is going on. Boring really.
It seems like all I'm going is waking up, showering, eating breakfast, going to school, dealing with students (good and bad), grading papers, cleaning house, laundry, cooking (Kyle usually does this, even if I start he takes over), watching a bit of TV, reading a book, falling asleep. We have a track meet or two thrown in during the week. There is scouts on Wednesday nights, but all in all, it is quiet.
I am so not complaining! It is nice to have some quiet for awhile. It seems like I am just waiting for something. I'm not sure what that may be. Summer? I don't know. I think I am going to grab a summer job this year to help pay on my lofty student loan bill. Not to mention Kayla's class ring, Kota will probably get a Varsity letter in track, if he keeps racking up points, that means a varsity jacket. It seems like expenses are coming faster than income right now. But, that always goes in cycles.
We are getting ready for the Ohio Achievement Test at school. Maybe that's it. It's high stress time. Did I teach them everything they need to know? Will they remember all the strategies that we've worked on? Will they remember what a simile is, even though we've talked about it several times this year? It's hard letting 28 students get a grade for your years work. I hope the effort I put into them is the output I get from them. It's a gamble really. A very public gamble.
No matter what happens, I know I worked hard for those students. I hope it's enough.
I'm looking forward to sunshine and blue skies with white puffy clouds. Maybe that's what I'm waiting for, warmth....Hmm?
