In just a few short days I will be closing the door on one of my all time favorite school years. I have to be honest and say this year comes a very close second to the four wonderful years I spent teaching art. I have had the best time teaching reading, and in the second half of the year also math. So at this time of year with shifts in positions being made, I just held my breath. I will gladly do any job at my school, but I was praying please let me continue with this. I feel like I have just begun to develop what I want to accomplish. So did you hear me shout when I heard I would be back in remedial work! I will be in the same wonderful room (I worried about that one too) and will be teaching remedial . . . what?? I asked my principal and he said reading (probably) and writing (maybe) and maybe some creative lessons (dare I hope he meant art?). Likely not math. So while I am very happy, I am also a bit confused. But in the spirit of all that I have learned and tried to put into my new attitude, I didn't fret too long. I am too busy being excited!
I finished several projects this week. I did the Every Inchie Monday word - "jolly-boat". Honestly I didn't get too creative there. I just went with a small fishing type boat.
Then I worked on Diva's challenge. She asked us to use the tangle "rain". I sort of thought rain and mysst went together well, at least in theme.
I finished the tile for Adele Bruno's string challenge, but honestly I am not so happy with it. Too many lines. Yes I know that is what makes a tangle, but take a look, you'll see what I mean. Don't you?
And last, but not least, is my favorite for this week's work. This is one of the many (many!) templates form Ornation Creation and Ben Kwok's work. I have a stack that hopefully I will work on this summer. I really enjoyed this one.
Now on to getting some rest. I have a three day week end, which I am grateful for. Then I work 2 days and HERE COMES SUMMER! Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are having a blessed week.
