I did it! I really should say we did it! Another school year is over. But along the way, I had such a good time. This year I had nine students in my Mini-Mustang class. Mind you, my class is the Pre-K 2 class. So nine was plenty and I loved each one of them!
I didn't have much time to commit to my writing and blogging and visiting my blogging friends. But I hope to catch up during this summer.
I have to give you a little glimpse of how I spent my days. Because of privacy issues, I can't show you their faces. But I think you'll get the idea.
There were times of laughter.
There were times of comfort.
Last year I won a giveaway on Meaningful Mama's blog. It was a whole package of books and activities on teaching children the concept of filling a bucket. When they do something kind, they fill that person's bucket. When they are unkind, it empties their bucket. It was fun to teach them.
Every day when we had playground time, we gathered together in a circle. We put one hand in and made some agreements. "No pushing, we're all friends." Of course, the little ones often added things like "no spitting, no hitting, no potty words". I had to chuckle.
Of course, I couldn't have done it without Miss Patricia. She helped me every day with the children. We make a great team!
I look forward to time off this summer. But I will miss each one of these children.
We had a great school year. I know they learned much but they also taught me as well.
Take time to enjoy the moments. Put the cell phone down, stop texting for a bit and enjoy the moment. Kids grow up so quickly. Laugh with them. Play with them.
Yes we did it. Now I look forward to some rest and relaxation and visiting family and friends. I plan to get back to writing too. I hope I still have some readers who haven't given up on me as a blogger. I do look forward to catching up with you.
Blessings and love,
