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?
