Is anyone else feeling conflicted about the end of the year? Don't misunderstand me, I L-O-V-E love summer vacation! I love the freedom to stay up past 9 p.m. and sleep in past 5:15 a.m. I love being able to eat out for lunch if I choose or wear jeans/shorts and not have to wait until Friday, but man I am also starting to feel a little bummed about the school year ending. It is perhaps because I had the best possible class of third graders this year. I know everybody says that about their class but I mean it! My class was well behaved (even for substitutes), they were sweet to each other, and they worked REALLY hard! I loved the sponge-like quality that they possessed, actually wanting to soak up everything that I taught and for the most part they had the ability to do it. They were so awesome in fact that I fear they may have spoiled me forever . . . OK perhaps that was a tad dramatic but I do feel it is necessary to say that this was one of my favorite groups of kids and I will truly be sad to see them go but wish them well in all of their future endeavors!!!
So, I have to ask, am I crazy? Or do you guys out there in blog-land also get this feeling sometimes???
