So, I'm sitting here right now watching my third period take their final exam. I can't believe today is the last day I will see them. I'm really sad that this school year is over! Don't get me wrong, I will be glad to have a break. It's exhausting teaching everyday. I never really thought teachers had a hard job until I walked in their shoes. But man! You have to use your brain everyday. Not to mention the emotional attachment you get with these kids. I feel like I have 98 children and what effects them effects me! I love these kids and they have made my first year teaching awesome!

Brady's last day of school is on Thursday. It's only a half day so he officially will have his last day on Wednesday. I'm thinking that I don't want to see any kids on Thursday, his teacher probably doesn't either.

A week ago Brady had his school program. It was called Wackadoo Zoo.

This is a picture of his class plus two others. Each class ended up being different animals. Brady was a lion that made rooster sounds.

This last picture is Mrs. Paula, Brady and Miss Bailey (she's married now so she's Mrs. Martin). These two ladies have made Brady's first year of school a wonderful experience. I appreciate all they have done for him! He has made all "S's" on his report card. He can read really well for a 5 year old. And he loves school!

Man, this blog has made me so sad! My little boy is about to be in the first grade! How they grow up so fast!!!!
