I am EXHAUSTED after a nutty day with my super-done-with-school 3rd graders, but I have to keep reminding myself that I literally have 1.5 days of school left! It doesn't seem real, even as I type it! I swear these guys just entered my classroom, and now, after spending 180 days together, they are leaving me!
I go back and forth with feeling emotional about them leaving and feeling strongly that it's their time to move on! They've grown up...they're 4th graders now! And they are certainly acting like it! But, I do love them, more than they will probably ever know! There's just something so special about being a child's teacher...like you know you've contributed an awesome piece to their life's puzzle!
So for these last couple of days, as I try to survive the chaos, my mantra will be...
Happy Hump Day, friends!
