5 . . . more . . . days

I have a love/hate relationship with the last week of school before break. First, I am extremely excited every year, as I love Christmas . . . and knowing I am going to see my family soon just makes me so happy! But on the other hand, the kids are crazy and excited, too . . . and this week is one of the hardest weeks to be a teacher. Don't get me wrong, I love the holiday spirit . . . but when you have only two weeks of class left after Christmas break, and you have x, y and z to get through before then in order for the students to be adequately prepared for the next year of French . . . phew, it's tough. All I want to do this week is eat sweets, watch Christmas movies and drink cocoa . . . unfortunately, that is not what the state of VA thinks of as a Standard of Learning for French class . . . bummer.

So here I go . . . 5 more days of craziness. Then it is off to MI. Our last Christmas as a couple . . . kind of bittersweet.

What all are you doing for the holidays?

Cans for Comments

A new craze is hitting the world of photography, and I am totally up for joining it! Photographers Chris+Lynn, from the awesome town of Vancouver, started a can drive that is totally awesome.

So, here's how it works, for the next 7 days, for each comment left on any post (as far back as you want to go) I will donate a can of food to my local food bank!

Here's what they have to say about it - "It's that time of year when sharing is extra-special and extra-needed. So go ahead, it's easy to help out - just click on comments function at the bottom of the post & write to us!"

So I would also like to get involved. So, please, leave some comments and make me take a huge car load of cans to the food bank! :)

You guys are amazing! Here's the post with all the other photographers who are also participating - go leave some comment love for them, too!

P.S. I totally failed on the blog posting last week . . . too bad no one caught me on Monday! :)
