Every year seems to be harder and harder for Tim. He leaves the Elementary School this year and heads next door to the Middle School. He will be a 6th grader in the fall. This year he absolutely loved his teacher. The poor boy couldn't stop crying! A few days before school ended he told me that his teacher was the best in the school. He hoped that I understood how she surpassed me!
I always take Tim out to lunch on the last day since it is a half day of school for the kids. We made our annual trip to A&W for burgers and root beer. Speaking of root beer, Tim asked me today if you could get drunk on root beer. When I told him no he asked why it was called beer then. Any insight on that would be appreciated! :)
The Monday after school ended I was back at school writing a grant with some fellow teachers. Then last Friday I was back again for a workshop. I have this week off from "school related" activities, but I'll be back all of next week.
Let's see what summer vacation brings me this year.
