Celebrate Turn #16
I am so grateful to Ruth Ayres for inviting us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.
This week I celebrate accomplishments!
Last weekend I celebrated my second graduation in three weeks.
My daughter graduated the first of May from our local university, and my son graduated from high school last week. It is hard to believe we have reached this turn in our lives.
Looking ahead, Megan was hired as the freshman basketball coach and had her first interview last Thursday. Ethan signs up for classes from our local university in just a few weeks. I am proud of what they have accomplished as young adults, and look forward to what lies ahead.
This week I am also teaching a reading camp for struggling readers. After teaching 6th graders this year, it has been fun spending time with 2nd graders again. Our accomplishment for the first four days - they all correctly spelled the word "very" in their writing - this has been a struggle.
Summer has arrived and there are so many things I want to accomplish - books to read, conferences to attend, words to write, units to plan, weight to lose.
So summer, just go slow please, because I have much to do!
Have a great week and may you have many celebrations along the way!
