End of the school year (almost)

This past month has been exhausting, exhilarating, and mostly enjoyable (with the exception of setting up more than 3500 pieces of artwork for art show). I had one of those great-ish teacher moments during the AP testing. One of the AP Art students, whom I had as a freshman in Studio Art came up to me an said that she wanted to thank me, because if it were not for having taken Art with me she wouldn't be in AP Art now. I was very touched an moved by this. I have been teaching Art for almost 15 years now and I am always surprised the impact I have on students lives. And it is not always the students that you expect. This year is bittersweet a well because my first group of students that I has as freshman when I started working in this district are graduating. With pride I can say that the bulk of the award winners for the year are former students of mine. Even as a "veteran" teacher, it gives me a great sense of accomplishment and the feeling that I truly have an impact on theses students, whether or not they (or I) realize it.

Sun, Sun, Sun

And of course it's raining today :(
Work is too crazy busy now. I need a break.
I don't even have time to do laundry.
Currently on Pandora: the Gomez playlist, seriously awesome.
The baby definitely hated getting a haircut, but he looks so cute, with his big old melon head.
I wonder how much we need to worry about the Swine Flu?
I need a pedicure, my feet look old.
How vapid did that just sound?

First new post in a while

Crazy hectic time of the year, back to back art shows until June 1.

Thank God the weather has finally turned nicer.

The trees are budding and are an incredible lime green's surreal.

I think we'll try a new beach with the baby this weeknd as it's going to be almost 90 degrees out on Sunday. HELLOOOOOO global warming?

I need a facial and a pedicure and have money for neither.

Why can't I win the mega-millions jackpot? I need to be that person...hey you never know?

I am an awful blogger

I just cannot seem to find the time to blog correctly (or at least more than once every three months). I don't know how people do it. Maybe if I didn't work it would be easier (you hear that Eric?). I was going to try the random 5 sentence a day, and that lasted all of 3 days. How do I find the time to do this? Thursdays seem like my least busiest day, so it will be Thursday updates from now on! ( we'll see how long this lasts ;p )

A lot of snow. The baby thinks his mittens are hand puppets.
He's still sick, runny nose and coughing.
I'm the only healthy soul in the house.
Really looking forward to spring.
Have to do something creative, have the need.
