The Last Weeks

I would like to say that my last weeks at school were great, but they were not. They were extremely difficult. The difficulty did not lie with my kids, but with me personally. One of my best friends and co-workers lost his 15 day old baby in mid-May. So, I was with him for two days. It was extremely difficult for me to hold it together the last few days. It was as if I was on an emotional roller coaster. After that, I then began the process of closing down two classrooms. I had to finalized the grades for both my and his classes. In addition, I had to give two finals every single period. I was giving his final and my final. Trust me, I am not complaining because I was glad that I could help out a true friend. At the same time, it was an extremely diffciult time for me. My body was at the school giving finals and wrapping up end of the year items, but my mind was elsewhere.
