It's the end of the year and the students can see the light at the end of the tunnel. They're turning in textbooks and the end of the school year field trips have begun. My colleagues and I are wrapping up our units, closing out our 4th quarter grades, and preparing for report cards as we count down the days to 8th grade graduation and the last day of the regular school year.
After today, there are eleven days left. Depending on how I look at it, that's either a long time away... or just around the corner. Either way... things are going to get exponentially busier for me.
In addition to things being hectic at work... this Saturday my eldest niece will be graduating from high school and the whole family is reuniting in the Bay Area to celebrate her special day. We'll also be celebrating Mama Fuji's 80th birthday... which means I'll be taking a break from writing new posts on my blog.
I have a few scheduled posts that will pop up next week and I'll try to write a few thank you posts whenever I have some free time.
Anyways... I just wanted to give you a heads up on what's going on with my life. Speaking of breaks... I freed my recently acquired autograph of Mr. Koufax from his plastic prison:
Doesn't he look a lot happier?
