8 Heads of Cabbage and Last Day Blues

I know... you're wondering why the title of this post mentions cabbage, right?  It's not really a common topic on teaching blogs, so I understand your curiosity.  When I arrived home yesterday after a l-o-o-o-n-g day, I found 8 heads of cabbage on my kitchen counter.  Really!
It turns out that we have big plans this weekend, and I had completely flaked on remembering!  My hubby has the cabbages to make oodles of coleslaw for a *huge* annual pig pickin' (it's a southern thing, y'all!)  Anywho, I'm really excited, as it means I'll be seeing a couple hundred family members and friends this weekend!!  What I nice way to celebrate the end of our school year.  Which leads me to...

(sniff) the Last Day Blues!  I said goodbye to my class today.  It was hard, since they are really a phenomenal bunch.  We invited their families to an end-of-year picnic, which was in the classroom due to the rain.  It was amazing to see students with their parents, siblings, aunts, grandparents, etc.  The adults were all welcoming of my buddies whose families couldn't make it, and everyone had a grand time.  (sniff)

Thanks for reading my ramblings...
