When I say this week has been tough, it's an understatement.
I haven't had the time nor frame of mind to work on new activities.
My heart is heavy with the struggles and issues of the children at my school.
I grew up in a bubble. The things that we're dealing with now weren't even on my radar growing up. And being a teacher, you don't just turn off at 4:00 each day (or however late you may stay because you're so busy). The work and the emotional ties come home with you. I'm working at a school that's pretty tough. There's no bubble anymore. It's scary to think about.
I love my kids with all my heart. This week was a true test of will, strength, and faith. I hope that all of you have a restful weekend. I have next week off and have tons of things written down to share with y'all. I look forward to rejuvenating and coming back with full force by Monday. :)
I'll leave you with a note one of my precious babies left on my desk today:
