The Good, the Ugly, and The Best!

The Good:

With missing 7 days of school in the last couple of week (1 storm day, and 6 due to flood preparations and such) our transition back into the school routine yesterday was very good. I have to admit, I have a great group of kids and I was looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. I truly love my job and am grateful every day for the job that I have.


That afternoon we were notified that we will NOT have to make these days up and our school year will still end on the 29th of May. Only 36 days left of school. Not that I am counting. Like I said, I like my job... but the end of the school year brings some hope for nicer weather and riding outside.




The Ugly:

We are not out of the clear with this flood. They expect the Red River to crest in the middle of this month, again. Some people are saying it won't get as high as it did last week. Some are saying it is too hard to tell right now; there is still too much snow that needs to melt and the temps are going to be higher over the next few weeks, in comparison to the past few weeks. The chance of thunderstorms will increase, also playing a roll in potential flooding.


The BEST:

The UNC Tar Heels beat Michigan State last night for the 2009 NCAA Championship Title! The game wasn't too exciting, but I was happy to see UNC win it! YAY!!

That's great that your transition back to routine went smoothly and that you don't have to make up those missed days!

Today the campus is all crazy! The team arrives back at 2:00 and everyone is going out to meet them. I am so happy for the seniors on the team.

IronGambit said...

yes, UNC did!

Lucky that you don't have to make up days. That always creates some chaos at the end of the school year. :) I hope the flooding is over! Enjoy your last couple months of school.
