I have been looking forward to this day for quite some time. It's been a rough month for me. There were days, even weeks, when I didn't know if I was going to make it to the end of the year. But here I am, relaxing in my summer duds, planning to get a movie from the library, contemplating which books I'll read this week.
And to counteract my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month one of my students gave me a note during class on Thursday. I didn't read it right away because she asked me not to, but I think I've read it 15 times since then. It's extra sweet because I was positive I wasn't getting any of these notes this year.
