End of year stress

It’s that time of the year again!  It’s time for the lovely EOGs….please note my sarcasm.  I always feel so bad for the kids who have to take these tests.  I see so many of them get so stressed out that they make themselves sick.  Then there are those who just don’t have anymore hope left so they don’t even try.  I really wish we could get rid of these types of tests.  They don’t really measure what the kids actually know.  Sigh, but there’s nothing I can really do except help the kids as much as possible and give them all the support and love I can.

This also means that my life right now, is a whole basket of crazy.  They have switched up the class schedules so many times that neither the kids nor the teacher know which way is up.  I think everyone is counting down to the last days of school.  I know, I am.  This year has been particularly rough.  But I have to keep holding on.  Not for me, but for the kids.

I’ve already started to make plans for the summer though.  I would like to bike around the country side I live in and take pictures.  There are a lot of old barns and houses that would just make the best paintings.  I do want to paint more this summer, but we shall see what happens.  I also plan to double down on Souls in the Dark so I can have it out by Aug.

So much to do and so little time….sigh.
