A Peek at My Week (October 21-24)

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Parent Teacher Conference week is over!  Friday I had 22 conferences starting at 7:30 and running pretty much nonstop until 3:30.  I did schedule myself a lunch break and had a 30 minute break in the afternoon, but I was exhausted by 3:30 when my last parent left!  This week should be much less stressful without conferences hanging over my head.

Since the long week has taken me away from the blog, I decided to link up with Mrs. Laffin’s Laughings for A Peek at My Week to get back to the blogging world.

FALL BREAK!!!!  I’m definitely in need of this break.  It’s been a crazy few weeks and I’m looking forward to some down time!
