Thankful Thursday



Today I wrap up a wonderful school year with my 2nd grade students.  School's out, this teacher has to let her sweet monkeys out.

  12. I wonder who is happier at the end of the year--the kids or the teachers. Even if you love teaching, and it has been my experience with the teachers of my children that they do love it, but it has still got be wonderful to see the end of the year roll around.

  14. Aww nice . Pretty scenic area too .
    I like the post fence with the barb rather than just old barb wire ( if they have to use the barb wire period) ~ looks nicer and probably gives them a better head up seeing the wood first .

  18. You caught me off guard when you were talking about monkeys. I was scanning the picture for the monkeys and then it hit me. That is what I call me grandchildren - little monkeys because they climb all over everything.
