Y

esterday
was a busy, yet fun day! I started my day with a beautiful breakfast:






I spent the day at the water slides with my grade 8s. We had an awesome day. While hanging out I had a granola bar, some pink grapefruit juice, and some chips. Lunch was pizza, and an ice-cap.

We had a major storm yesterday, with buckets of rain and hail. I don't know if my flowers are going to make it :-(

Dinner was a chicken taco (I only had 1) with black olives, cheese, and sour cream:





I spent the evening making cookies for my students, as today is my last day with them. This is the first class that I have had from the 1st day of school to the last - I will miss them:





I also made a couple batches of cake pops for my staff - I am happy to be working with them again next year.





This evening I am having 30 people over for our work end-of-the-year party.

What are you up to this weekend?

That's what's great about being a teacher, they changed you and you impacted their lives as well.! Can't wait to hear your party recap..30 people is a lot in one house for one host!

Oh everything just looks so good Jolene!

You are the best teacher - great treats!

Question, you live in Canada right? Would you go up northern ON for a job that pays really well (just for a year even)...but, well, is in northern ON with nothing to do and cold etc...

OR hold off and wait for a job that might be okay out west in Victoria maybe or somewhere bigger but the pay is only the regular,and still doing minimum loan payments, etc...
