All Packed Up

Yesterday was officially the last day of school. For teachers, at least. We had a tantilizing taste of the break over Memorial Day weekend, but then had to head back to the "office" for two more days. And what days they were!

Most of you probably don't know this, and perhaps it's not the way every school does things, but in our neck of the woods, we have to pack up our entire rooms. Every year. (This way they have access to the floors and walls to paint and wax and spruce the place up.)

Empty chairs and empty tables...

This year differed slightly, however, in that almost every teacher in the entire building will be in a new room next year. Which meant that not only did we have to box up our things, we then had to haul them to the other side of the building to our new classrooms. Once there, everything gets stacked ceiling-high in the hallways. It was craziness! But the first grade team was fantastic, as usual. We all pitched in and helped each other, taking 40 gazillion trips to and fro, to and fro, until we were all collectively done. Have I mentioned how much I love my grade level?

Boxes and piles and stacks, oh my!

The love continued the next day when we celebrated fellow first-grade teacher and bride-to-be Katie at her shower, hosted by us, her team. It was a great way to end the school year, surrounded by all the fabulous people I've worked with.

My team!

Now my next packing job - getting us ready for the beach!
