Recently I have had a bit of a dark cloud ☁️ over me.
Our administration changed, my mentor went to a different site.
I was letting it all get to me.
I had to stop and realize that none of that matters.
I will always have my mentor.
What matters is my students.
What matters is what I make of the situation.
So I’m going to make lemonade out of the lemons 🍋 I’ve been handed.
How do you deal with these type of stress?
I’m grabbing one of my favorite books by @miasheridanauthor kicking my feet up and losing myself in her great books.
Oh & working out 🏋🏻♀️

Art club today created exactly what I‘m currently dreaming of ... and I love how they presented it on the blue and yellow school tables! It’s been the most amazing time with those kids, all so excited about making and creating and I hope to see everyone back in September .
Day 1 of 52 days of summer. So I thought I'd journal each day of the summer holidays this year. Partly so I have the memories to look back on but also to show that you don't have to fill every day with expensive trips or holidays or gifts to make it fun. Today we just went on a bike ride to the local park (which also happens to be the one I would go to as a child), I was able to show Penelope my old childhood house and take her to some of my old favourite places. None of this cost a thing but we all had so much fun and Penelope was so exhausted from her bike ride she fell asleep when she got home which she hasn't done in years!!! Bring on day 2. #summerholidays#day1ofsummerholidays#schoolsout#mummydaughtertime#mumvillage#channelmum

Yes, it’s a thing.
Over the last few years I’ve noticed how different children (and young people) are in the last week of a school year. Endoftermitis is a very common condition (for children and staff - I should probably throw in parents too).
Children are aware of impending change; a long break to look forward to (or not), the anticipation of a new school year, new class teacher or even a new school.
There is so much much going on too; end of year performances, celebrations and transition days.
It’s a lot for our children to deal with, particularly our more sensitive ones.
The excitement, exhaustion and the uncertainty can cause some of our children to behave differently.
Some of our children are beyond tired (emotionally and physically). This may cause them to get angry or upset much quicker than they normally would. They may be over emotional; fed up, crying at the slightest thing, and they might need more of you.
They might want more hugs, more reassurance, more calm.
Go gently with them.
Three grandkids this week and next. Today we used dice to determine how many body parts we would paint. After each roll of the dice and corresponding painted part, we swapped paintings and continued on until we had created 4 monsters. Then we had fun naming them and creating a story about each one based on the finished painting!
We also made these Little Fits out of yarn...when you are angry you can throw your little fit! Lol!
ASL is going well too! They now can sign: home, family, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, baby, dog, cat, l love you, movie, TV, shower, bathroom, kitchen/cook, boy, girl, sister, brother. #summer#grandkids#schoolsout#campgrandma

Things started to take a toll on me mentally with all of this quick medical news I've been getting. To all those who have inquired as an IG or FB friend, family member or just being a good human, I'm doing well...taking it one day at a time and most of all, relying on God.
I'm shouting out my girl N. Mac for the phone calls, prayers, texts and pick me up's. Even listening to me sobbing on the phone because...I'm used to my independence. Having to ask someone to take me somewhere just to leave my house, was a HUGE deal for me. I couldn't even take a walk for 2 min. Everything is still a work in progress, but girl...you helped me tremendously. Bible verses, prayer, reffirming words, etc..You have 5 kids daily and a dog and you would STILL offer to pick my family up while Hubs is at work. You would include my kids on your fun activities so they wouldn't feel their summer is gone. You even planned an outing so we could go to dinner and got me rides. You stayed awake until 2am so we could see some movies with our older kids😆. I have my family, but you also saw a need and stepped in and stepped up! You're amazing and I thank you from every inch of my heart. We all do. 🤩💜 #friends#thriveexperience#thrivelifestyle#realdeal#orthopedicboot#achillestendonitis#summerbreak#schoolsout#prayerlife#christianmom#healing#momlife#momsofinstagram#boymom#girlmom#movingforward#motivationalmonday

Grass cutting has become a spectator sport in our gaff! What you cannot see is that he is also eating his breakfast while judging... beats the smell of watching the bin lorries anyway 😂🙈 After weeks of "I'm bored" you're just happy that they're being entertained by something - but what you also cannot see is that there is a bouncy castle in the back garden from yesterday's party... but apparently this is more fun 🙄🙄

#SummerVacation - Day 31 | Yo, f’real? #LetMeHearARhyme is the movie I never knew I needed. I mean, I know it’s a book, but it reads like the Black summer Hollywood blockbuster that I’ve never had. @writeinbk took her readers on a journey through 1998 Brooklyn, arguably one of the best times for Hip-Hop, to tell a story about a group of friends that just wanted one of their own to be recognized as a somebody. Being a native of Brooklyn, NY, this entire story felt like a love letter to the culture that I grew up in. The descriptions within the book of that era of Hip-Hop, the accuracy of the parts of Brooklyn covered, and the language are all aspects that kept me reading nonstop. I have SO MUCH LOVE for this book and I’m gonna do my best to get everyone to read it! 🤓 #BlackTeachers#BlackTeachersMatter#BlackEducators#BlackEducatorsMatter#SchoolsOut#TeachersDoSummer#TeachersHaveFunToo
