Guess who was at work from 6:30 am to 7:15 pm today? Yup that's me. I'm exhausted but I'm so happy because I finally actually got some stuff DONE. This year it just feels like the workload never ends. Not that it's over now, but I made a significant dent, so that's all that matters. Oh by the way, I was scooping ice cream that last hour at the Ice Cream Social, I'm not actually crazy enough to stay at work until 7:15 just for productivity.
Since I love Amber and love to steal her post ideas almost as much as I love her, here are my letters for the day...
Dear Head Band Breaker,
It was very sweet of you to bring a new set of headbands and a nice coloring book that said, "I'm Sorry" to school today for the girl who's headband you broke. On the other hand, she is not nice, so continue to stand up for yourself, just slightly more appropriately next time.
Your Teacher who had to put a little effort into using the words "not nice" instead of something worse...
Dear Sweet Former Students I Saw Tonight at the Ice Cream Social,
Come back to Kindergarten. I miss you. Please?
Your Reluctantly Former Teacher
Read this great post by Mrs. Mimi, she sums up a lot of my thoughts on education and "discussion" of education.

We are not going to run a 5K on Saturday. I realize you are exhausted from my daily insane life and I will most likely treat you with a nice hot yoga session instead. Hopefully. Just so you know, I would go more often but the times for hour long sessions suck and you know me well enough to know I don't do hour and a half yoga sessions.
Dear BFF Katie,
Our "Get Away From Life" trip now has the following stops: Vancouver down to San Diego (and everywhere in between), Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, Switzerland, Germany, Prague, Italy, South Africa. Anywhere else I should add to the list?

Dear Caramel Apples,
I love you. Thanks for reminding me that it is actually fall even though it was muggy and 80 today.
