Teacher Appreciation Month is winding down. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but it seems that way. I have 3 kids at 3 different schools - each celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week at different times. Two weeks ago, it was the middle school. Last week, the junior high. This week, the elementary school.
As room mom of Son #3's kindergarten class, this Teacher Appreciation Week has me especially busy. I collected letters of appreciation written by the parents of Son #3's classmates, assembled them into a scrapbook to be presented on Wednesday. I also arranged for a class sitter on Thursday for the teachers' luncheon. The class sitter will begin working with the kids on the teacher's year-end gift.
Did I mention that I chose this week to go out of town? Well, I didn't pick it specifically because it was Teacher Appreciation Week, but I'm long overdue to visit my mother and weekends are tough since I teach religion on Sunday evenings. Last night was our last religion class for the school year so - with the exception of two sons playing baseball - I have my weekends back. YAY!
That's a round about way of saying that I'll be away from my computer (hence my blog) from May 7 through 11th.
On Sunday, I'll be having Mother's Day breakfast with my mom in Virginia and dinner with my hubby and kids in Louisiana - I feel like a jetsetter. :-)
To my fellow mom-bloggers, I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing Mother's Day.
