Quickly Goes The Year


                 Celebrating Each Saturday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. It's a great time to welcome Saturday and this much needed holiday weekend! Come join us! Tweet at #CelebrateLu

        We were awash in final work this week. The uncommon and constant rainy days fits well the times of the last weeks of school. This week filled with creating a trip bulletin board which every class does, leaving them for summer visitors, and one more visit in the fall till new ideas and new classes take over. Students also worked on both class and math portfolios, final unit projects, visiting our buddies, staying afloat when all most wanted was to have summer, vacation and sunny weather, arrive.
         I celebrate that we did accomplish a lot of work during the week, only small colds were evident, and our own very fun time came yesterday with the arrival of yearbooks. We have seven and a half days left, filled with work and activities and parties, memory days! Congratulations to those of you are now finished, and best wishes to everyone who still have weeks to go!

        Celebrating the endings, and that my garden has never looked greener!

  1. Enjoy your last 7 1/2 days, Linda! We have four days left and there is rain forecasted for every day...which means inside recess. :( I agree with you about the garden. I'm headed out to work in mine now. Have a great week!

  2. You capture the bittersweet memories of that last week or so...holding on...yet letting go....I never find it possible to totally celebrate the end...and so far there has always been a beginning that I hold onto during the summer....

    1. My beginning will be different next year, Anita, and while it is something I'm choosing, I am also filled with trepidation, wondering how this new part of my life will go. Thank you!

  3. Your garden looks gorgeous! I was in Denver on Sunday and Monday and LOVED the unexpected clouds and rain! I felt really blessed to catch Denver on 2 of its, what, 5 overcast days of the year? (I love overcast days.) After a very dry winter, we had snow twice in one week and several days of rain, so my garden is also suddenly green--as well as very weed-filled. Must start doing a better job with the mulching! Enjoy the final few days.

    1. This cloudy spring has been quite a change, Elisabeth. It even snowed while I was on my trip! We had the hot weather of spring while in D.C.! Thanks for the wishes!

  4. Final weeks. Memory Days. Work. Parties. Best Wishes. I hope your 7 and 1/2 days will have lots of uplifting emotions. Tears and rain are both good, life would be too dry without them.

  6. Such sweet memories you take into the summer Linda. May your garden keep those memories tucked beneath its rich green and chocolate blanket. Endings are bittersweet but tomorrows are blessed.

    1. Thanks, Julie. We've had rain much of today, again. The garden has never looked so good. We are not used to this, but are grateful for this gift of rain. Thanks for the wishes. I'm hoping it will be a good ending to the year.

  10. I've been thinking so much about endings this year and how it's helpful to see them as beginnings too. I wish you a lovely ending of the school year and a wonderful beginning to your next set of adventures.

  11. I was always happy for a few rainy days near school's end. It makes it easier to stay focused, but then we always wanted beautiful, sunny days for those outside activiities near the end. I love that your classes create trip bulletin boards. I hope you'll share a picture of the board with us. Happy endings and new beginnings for you. I can't wait to see you next month at All Write.
