Good-bye 2008-09 School Year!

The last day of school was Friday, June 12th. Already, it feels like forever ago. The final week of school was busy as always, and it hasn't let up since, which is why I'm just now talking about it. I thought about just skipping this post and leaping right into summer, but I decided to do just one quick entry.

I felt more organized this year than normal, but still was up until late the night before wrapping and organizing various gifts for volunteers and P's teachers. P had 6 different people (!) to buy for between the morning and afternoon staff, and the director. We did stationary from Target for her peeps. My job share partner is moving to full-time in first grade, so she got the appropriately titled, Off to First Grade book.
My volunteer families received the above gift.
After movie day, game day, end of the year concert day, and many evenings of end of year administrative stuff, the final day arrived. As always, I enjoyed handing out K-graduation certificates and sharing prideful comments, I was sad to say goodbye to my students, but then more than ready to celebrate at the end-of-year luncheon.
Goodbye 60% schedule, job-share partner, 2009 students and Ponderosa Preschool!

Just thought I'd say I've only worked 2 days lately and I'm already tired of working. I have no idea how you do it.
I love the signed pictures of the class, that's what C's teacher did too this year. So cute.

Hilary, I don't know how you have the patience to accomplish your grocery store magic, and keep a clean house with three kids!!
