Well, I survived the last week of school before break.
Wednesday- Field trip to a German ballet production of Rumplestiltskin. My favorite part? The drunk girl carrying around her bottle of Vodka. In a kids theater performance. Ah, Germany.
Thursday- Polar Express day. Wore pajamas to school, which was a huge bonus. TBought and made hot chocolate for all the kids. Printed tickets for the train ride for all the kids. Brought the movie. Set up the "train." Had frozen bells delivered from the North Pole. I'll take my teacher of the year award now :) (PS- I can't post pictures because I may or may not have worn pajamas sent to me by my in-laws for Christmas. :) Oops.)
Friday- Christmas party! I was happily surprised when my room mom had most of our party set up and ready to go. We decorated gingerbread houses, had a book exchange, listened to a story, gave presents to the moms and dads, and watched the Grinch. Busy, but fun, day. And, the kids were pretty well behaved. And, I didn't even drink until I got home.
Now, it is time to hunker down and study ALL WEEKEND LONG. Jordan and I are heading to Frankfurt on Monday. My GRE test starts at noon. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Pray for me!
