As usual, the last week was full of pomp and circumstance. This year it was even more sweet for a couple of reasons. One, my OWN daughter graduated, and two, this was my first year back as a full-time teacher after five years of being part-time. I always thought that I made good connections with my class, even when being part-time, but it does seem more intense this year. I find myself already missing the kids.
Here's just a few highlights from my dual role this week as mom and teacher
First, below are the gifts I gave to my awesome volunteers - the baskets have a lemonade pitcher, lemons, lemonade mix, lemonade glasses, and a magazine.
Miss P at the end of year concert. She introduced the song, 5 Little Butterflies.

Graduation! "I'm a first grader!"
