The end of the school year that is! I love my job, but this has been a crazy year. I can't begin to explain how excited I am for the last day of school!! I have 8 days with students left this year. I'll miss my little friends, but I am happy to see them head on to first grade. I have a LOT to get done before the end of the year. I am moving to a different classroom next year so I have to pack up all my stuff. UGH! That's no fun, but the room is worth it! It's soooooo much bigger than my current room. I think I'll be working on getting everything moved the weekend after school is out and that next week. Our custodian is amazing and would do it all for me, but I just prefer to get it done myself. That way I am able to put it away as soon as I move it in.
Our pool has needed a new plaster job since last year. We got several estimates and after looking at what each company was going to do, we finally chose a company to replaster and tile our pool. We aren't excited about spending this much money since we need all our pennies for our adoption, but it had to be done. They are supposed to start on it this week. I can't wait until it's finished. It's been so hot here already. I could use a dip in the pool. I also love to entertain and pool parties are always fun!
We finally have our interviews set up. Our original social worker had some type of family issue and never ended up getting with us. So we have been assigned a new social worker who of course was leaving to go on vacation the day he got our case. He is supposed to be back tomorrow. We have appointments set up with him for our individual interviews next week. Then hopefully we can schedule our joint interview and home inspection shortly after those. I am ready to get this all done and be on the list!! I have our "dear birth*parent" letter ready and have been working on our profile. I have everything I want in it all organized and I'm having a friend help me get it all put together. I'm a scrapbooker, but have never done any digital scrapping. She is amazing and is going to help me get it all set up and organized the way I wanted it. Hoping to learn more about digital scrapbooking this summer. I have been doing some in fun stuff in PSE and PS.
After school is out, I'm heading to Michigan! My mom is having a knee replacement and I'm going to go up for a couple of weeks to help her out after her surgery. She had her other knee done several years ago so we know what to expect. It will be nice to spend some time with my mom even if she's not feeling up to par. It will also be great to hang out with all my friends. I can't wait!
Does anyone have anything exciting planned for the summer? Anything fun? Anything not so fun? Share your plans with me!
