a little spring break

March has been flying by and I can't believe it's already been a week since my spring break. Sometimes I hate breaks because they give me a glimpse of what life would be like if I could be a stay at home mom.  It makes going back to work on Monday morning painfully, painfully hard...but at the same time they are just what I need to feel refreshed. 

I kept Everdeen home from daycare most of the week so that she and I could play and have some lazy days together...we slept in, went to the nursery (twice :) to add some spring to our home, and played outside as much as we could. At the end of the week my older sister and her two boys came up to spend some time at my parent's house. To say Everdeen loves her cousins is an understatement.  All week long she would say, "I'm so excited!" or "Mommy, I'm so happy! My cousins are coming!"  She loves them so. 

This past Monday I hit the ground running.  There is no time to "ease" in when you're a teacher. I had meeting after meeting, my final observation from my principal, and a field trip that made my anxiety sore through the roof.  But as I walked down the hall to my classroom I noticed a new bulletin board our aid had made.  "Hang in There! Only 41 more days of school!"  Could it be!? Yes! I can do this :)
