Today marked the very last day of my very first year of teaching school. Oh, and the beginning of once again being unemployed. The past nine months have been such a crazy roller coaster ride. I love teaching and I will miss my kiddos from this year so much. We had a very difficult year but we all made it through and most of us with a smile on our face. . . .but for me it included tears in my eyes and many questions about what the future holds. Now I have to finish report cards and pack up my classroom and then try to figure out where in the world I am going to put all of the stuff I have accumulated over the past months and all the stuff I got from my very good friend that has been hanging out in my extra bedroom since last summer (because we are turning the room back into a guest room). And I have got to get my feet back under me, finish filling out job applications (again). Unfortunately, now is NOT the time to be looking for a teaching job in the great state of Texas so a prayer or two or 5 million would be greatly appreciated for a new teaching job (where I can stay possibly forever!).
I want children so much. Tonight we went to dinner and the cutest little girl was at the table next to us. She was probably nine to ten months old. I wanted her the entire time we were there. She had such a cute personality and smile. Mr. Giggles and my Dad enjoyed watching her also.
Well, that is all for tonight. I am tired and I really don't have anything else to say.
