  1. I remember having a couple of years that were frustrating and not ending with the feeling of accomplishing what I wanted. I hope next year is a better one for you. Loved your words about summer….and glad that you will have time to be with Maddie and Kate…and enjoy the summer. Another thing good about summer…it allows you to rest up for another year. Jackie

  2. Although I am currently experiencing the.. aw-I’m-so-sad-to-leave-my-kids.. and the, :(-I-know-it’ll-be-so-different-next-time-I-see-em’s…:) You seriously have gotten me excited for the sunshine days.

  3. That’s one thing I really like about this job- we get to start over each year. I hope the summer brings you lots of relaxation and the end of next school year you feel tons of accomplishment!
