The Last Day!

Today is the last day that I will teach for the school year.
It is the last day that I will teach Kindergarten.
It is the last day that I will teach in this school building.
It is the last day that I will look at these four walls (except when I come back next week to finish cleaning up.)

I am surprisingly nostalgic today, it feels a little like graduation day. You know, super excited and a little nervous to be moving on from one part of your life to the next. If I were to write a speech about ending my Kindergarten teaching days. I would start with this opening line.

"It only took me five years...but I finally learned how to read and now I can move on to first grade."

Yep, that's right- I will be teaching first grade next year and I will be moving to the school in the town were we live so it will cut my driving time and hopefully increase family time. Plus, I will finally be able to just be a part of one community. I always felt torn between the two before.

Anyway, I am very excited to be starting this next venture and super pumped about the next 3 months were I get to totally and completely immerse myself in just being a Mom!!!!

Yeah! Mommy and Bjorn time, here I come!

What a whopper!

We decided to spend our beautiful Sunday evening fishing...
and check out the whopper that I caught! To be fair Casey did catch more fish than me...but mine was still bigger!
