Play Date!

I promised my soon to be niece that as soon as my classes were over we would have a Shani and Madison day. She would constantly ask me when I was done with school and we would plan what we would do for our day. My second day off I called Nikki up to see if Madison could spend the night, she was very excited and started packing right away. That night we watched Peter Pan and talked until 1 a.m. while laying in bed. The next morning she woke up bright and early ready to go to the pool. We had lunch, put on our swimming suits and sun screen and walked over. After swimming for a while she was hungry again so we went inside. Sadly, Madison was not fond of my wheat bread so we decided to get manicures and pedicures then some fast food. She kept giggling during her pedicure because it tickled and asked why the people talked funny. We then got her some food at the mall and walked around. After we helped Chris pack up his apartment a little. Whenever her parents would call she would take the phone and say, "I love you, BYE!" and refuse to talk to them again. Around nine that night Nikki and Josh came by to take her back. We had so much fun together and I look forward to many more Shani and Madison days in the future.

I'm Done!

So Thursday was my last day for teaching this year. It is always a little bitter sweet, but I think more sweet this time around. I had a fun and extremely crazy class. They were writing memories about this year and so many of them were about Chris, the engagement, wedding and things like that. It's hard teaching sixth grade because the students leave to Jr. High. I love teaching and couldn't imagine another job. Tomorrow I am starting my master courses. I will complete a entire class in one week, do this for three weeks straight while working on an online course as well. OUCH! Enjoy your summer!
