Today was the end of school.
I always feel kind of weird about this. I'm ready for school to be over, but I love my job and don't want to be away from kids for 10 weeks. I'm ready for a break, but I really like the people I work with and consider them friends - I don't want to be gone for 10 weeks.
And of course it is sad that a whole grade level of kids is moving up to Jr. Hi, and I won't have them again. Ever. I've been their music teacher for the past 6 years of their schooling, and now not. That's really what makes me sad this time of year.
And then there is the thought of being off work for 10 weeks, and there is rejoicing in my heart!
I feel very mixed emotions. I'm excited about being off, but sad about being off at the same time.
And I'm so grateful to love my job, to love my boss, and to work with such great people that I consider friends.
I guess I just don't know *what* to feel at this point.
