A Serious Case of Teacheritis

I, honestly, have had ZERO intentions to blog recently. I haven't even really been reading posts. I guess you could all this Teacheritis, kinda like Senioritis, but much more serious. I know every teacher says this, but I feel like no one can possibly be more ready for this year to end.

Today, as I type, is our end-of-the-year field day. Princess J lasted a whole 40 minutes before freaking out about the baby bees flying around her (I think they were attracted to her sunscreen because there were three of them buzzing around her bottle in my hand) and begging to come inside. So, now I'm stuck in the holding cell with the nearly 20 students from my team who didn't complete their work this quarter and have to miss out on the fun. She's happy as can be, playing Cool Math games, but I am longing to be outside celebrating with my students. Sad face.

She better pull it together for the Minute to Win It activities this afternoon!

My favorite end-of-the-year project, I think, has been these DIY chia pets one of the other TAs found on Pinterest. This is Silly Billy, as named by Princess J. She is beyond excited for his "hair" to grow so she can braid and cut it. I think he's pretty darn cute!

Tomorrow is our last day. We're watching a movie in the morning, have another field day in the middle of the day during our Encore classes (non-core subjects), and then we do yearbook signing for the last two periods. It will be a long day. But... there's a big, bright light at the end of the tunnel!
