LOL...93 essays, screenings and tests! OH MY! Enjoy all the moments you can get with Scout :)

Caroline said...

Oh...gosh...sorry...what am I up to? Like you, spending time with my family and friends. A nice BBQ on Monday. Chilling out...ahhhhh...

Oh, my what a week! Scout is awesome!!

I'm on the third week of working two jobs (both part-time) and this week has been the best, so far, sleep wise. (One shift starts at 4 PM and the other 4 AM, lol.)

I'm happy two have three nights this weekend to sleep all night!

Sounds like your week was very busy. I am losing a student this weekend already and gaining another on Tuesday. This one is coming from the "alternative" school. Hope he learned his lesson???

Teachers are under-paid. It sounds like a great job though. Love the photo of Scout.

What a week! Wowza! Glad you had some quiet time with Scout!

We have alternative school from Kindergarten. My friend is the assistant principal in charge of the program for Killeen. It's sad I know, but our district is no nonsense.

I loved reading after your 52 hours at school you were able to relax and spend some quality time with Scout. (beautiful picture of your dear pooch).

My week was spent the usual way....Joseph looked after me on Monday (that's how he refers to our day together), visiting Mum and working at my voluntary jobs for 3 days. As well as organising a clearance bookfair.

All in all a very happy week as Sydney is enjoying beautiful Spring weather.

Keep on remembering to "feed" your joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

That sculpture I have as my header is in the grounds where I study philosophy....isn't it delightful!

Hugs, love and light coming your way, always.

wow...teachers are amazing....I know I could never do maybe 93 photos of those kids....but that's all I could handle :)

I'm tired just reading that! (Scout doesn't look too stressed out, though!) Hope you have a great week - and maybe some time to relax again soon.

This is a perfect post. Absolutely perfect!! I may need to borrow your idea some day. Of course, I will give credit to my muse. I do love this.
