and we're done

Thursday was my last day of school. This was my to-do list of things to get done before I could check out and be done. The kids helped me on Wednesday during school, the rest was done after school was out.

On Friday, one of my now former students showed up with his mom and sister...two hours and one very full minivan later, this is what my classroom looked like.

The last thing I did in my classroom was this:

Tannie wrote that word on the board when she was subbing for me while I was on maternity leave. I never had reason to erase it the rest of the time I was teaching, and at the end of the year it was still there, and... well, that was the very, very last thing I did before leaving my classroom for the last time.

The one and only thing I have left to do is turn in my keys. I intended to do that on Friday afternoon, but I missed the principal by about ten minutes. I'll have to go back to school on Tuesday, but then that's it. I'm done.

seven days until we move

YOU MADE IT! I'm so excited for you guys to be living closer to us. And that's hilarious that you left "COLORGUARD" on the board for that long. haha!

That's crazy Laura. :) And it makes me smile.

Can I just say that believe it or not, your pictures make me miss teaching so much it almost hurts. Weird huh?
