July Currently! (Thank goodness for summer!)

I know that I am not the only one wondering where this past school year went...although I have to admit that after the year I had, I am not that upset that it is done. Don't get me wrong - I loved my class, and the colleagues I worked with. However, between my cancer diagnosis and the beginning of my treatment, the passing of my dad this spring, and the loss of several people at school (through retirements, transfers and cutbacks), it has been one of the most emotional years I have gone through in a long time!

It's a good thing that Farley gives me that push to at least blog once a month, through her Currently linky over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade.

 

I think most of these are pretty self-explanatory...but just in case you wanted to know about the car girl part of me, here's a picture of my "baby"!
 
Isn't she pretty?  :)  Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much time I will get to drive her around this summer with the top down...With my treatments, I am more susceptible to the sun. Oh well, maybe I will pull her out on cloudy days, and let the wind blow through my hair scarf  past my bald head...lol


As far as the rest of this summer is concerned, I still need to do some clean up in my classroom to find some space for another teacher to be able to co-teach in my room. I also have to figure out exactly what this co-teaching thing is going to look like. I will also be spending the next week at a conference, which will allow me to finish much of my Level 1: School Administrator's Certificate. Hopefully I can get most of these things done in the next 10 days or so, before the next chemo treatment (this will be a new chemo drug I'll be starting so I am hoping that I will make it through these final three treatments over the summer...). My goal will also include a huge stack of books to read through!

Anyway, I hope that your summer break is off to a great start, and that you are able to enjoy many of the things that there just doesn't seem to be time for during the rest of the school year!

Take care,

Tammy

The link on the Oh Boy site was not correct. Just thought you would like to know. The link goes directly back to Oh Boy instead of here.
Beautiful bug, by the way : ) Oh, you also might want to turn off the word verification for comments.

I was going to tell you the same thing as Lucy, the link on Farley's site just takes you back to her site. I got here because you left me a comment.

I enjoyed meeting "your baby." Lol. I will be thinking good thoughts for you this summer, chemo = yikes (in my opinion). I really wanted a picture of your ice cream!! Ha! I think ice cream for breakfast would be appropriate.

Thanks everyone! I am blaming the wrong link on my chemo brain for now (hubby says that's not fair though...what was my excuse before? lol). I am trying to make the fixes with Farley. Have a great summer!

Link is fixed now!! :) Love the bug - super cute. Prayers and happy thoughts for you as you deal with all of the ick of the chemo. I hope the week of workshops go smoothly next week.
