3rd grade coming to an end

I feel like I've had a non-stop day. I stayed at the school until 5 trying to get ready for tomorrow and staighten up. I brought tons of stuff home to work on, and still didn't get to it all. It's 9pm and I should be in bed right now. I'll go in a second.

The assistant principal observed me today, and with my first lesson I did outside. The kids did really well and she even left me a really sweet note on the desk before she left.

Yesterday I opened up a letter I got from the school on Saturday...it says that they reviewed all my school records and as long as I keep my schedule this semester as it is and not drop out of student teaching then I am eligible to graduate in May. You have no idea how wonderful it is to hear that. I have been contemplating if I should bug the office or not about my records and make sure everything is in order and they're not hiding anything from me, but now I don't have to because I have proof that they are letting me graduate.

Tim's parents are having to make plans to come down for his dad's graduation in May already. I know it will be a good time, but I'm not sure if I'm ready. Tim and my parents will possibly meet in May, and as much as I wanted this a year ago, I'm not sure if I'm ready this time around.

Tim and I are doing better than we ever have been before. It's nice to understand each other and know how to deal with situations as they arise. It's also nice to enjoy each other again, getting to hang out and be best friends, it's wonderful. The idea of parents meeting still scares me though.

I still don't know how I did on my esl practice test, they still haven't found my test I took on Thursday. I'll again for the 3rd time tomorrow and see if there has been any progress in the search.

Time for bed, I just wanted to update a little bit. I can't believe that in less than 3 days I will be finished with student teaching in the 3rd grade. I'm really going to miss it. The kids are cute, and I've got the most wonderful teacher that I have been learning from. I know there is so much more I could learn too if I had the time. But it's time to move on to Kindergarten on Monday. At least I will still be at the same school and can see them for the next 7 weeks. I am kinda looking forward to a break and doing a week of observation. I knew that I would be worn out with teaching, just not this much.
