not much to post about, but it's been a week. i got the key to my new classroom and figured out how i'm going to decorate it. already got some stuff from mardel and hobby lobby. i think i'm going to wait until it's decorated to say anything else about it. k-dogg still has two weeks of work, but he has fridays off so he was home yesterday. he woke me up because for about 10 minutes there was a chance he was going to have to go into work on his day off. then he spent the entire day playing sims 3. why did i buy that for him!?!?! i think i actually got a headache from watching too much tv, so i haven't been in the living room today. instead i'm importing cds to my ipod because i've had it 2 1/2 years and still haven't imported everything i want on there. i only have 1385 songs on my ipod right now. i'm going shopping with my mom soon. then we have family birthday dinner at red lobster later. k-dogg's family. i would get out of it...but my birthday is one of the ones being celebrated so i better go. bean will be here tuesday afternoon! yea! i wish she was staying longer, but three nights is better than nothing. my mom is making us take family pictures while they're here. everyone's so excited. i wish sarcasm carried through a computer better.

yesterday was a really long day. it was the last day of school and the group that i taught two years in a row graduated from middle school. i got to see the whole thing. the special awards were pretty funny. one of my favorite kids got the big student of the year award. i got lots of good pictures. the kids left at 1:30, but teachers had to stay until 6. that's just not right! i had to pack everything in my room and shove it in my car because i was determined not to have to go back up there next week. we got it all done. we had the wildest 7th grade lunch conversation of the whole year and some of the other teachers actually told us to be quiet because we were so loud. it was fun. i goofed off way too much, but i still managed to get out of there on time with everything. high school graduation started at 8. i have never seen a crowd that big at one of our graduations. traffic was backed up halfway across town and the parking lot was crazy. i'm so glad i had a seat saved. i hadn't been to a graduation at my old school since bean graduated in 2001. this one was special since it was the class i taught my first year of teaching. they were such a wild class with a horrible reputation that was pretty much deserved. but there are some really good kids in the class. the girl that gave the welcome was really nervous and welcome everyone to the class of 2009's "commencication." that was definitely entertaining. hearing the valedictorian say in her speech that her mother raised her to be a proper lady...and knowing that she's pregnant was pretty entertaining, too. as soon as the commencication was over, there were fireworks, so this class really did go out with a bang. it was fun. i didn't get home til midnight and didn't get up til 12:30 this afternoon. then i went back to sleep from 2-4:30. i think i was a little tired. i ended up skipping the foghat concert and my friend's dance recital and went to eat sushi with k-dogg. not a bad way to start my summer.
one of my favorite kids ever. he was in my class the first year i taught and still refuses to call me by my married name even though i got married over Christmas break that year. his little brother is the one on the right in the picture above.
i'm glad i got this picture, even though i don't know the kid. right after i took this, the teachers started taking up all the 2009 glasses!
i've known this kid since he was born and he was in my class my first year. he is having to bend down so that you could see both of us in the picture!
