No, I am not gone!! I am just absolutely swamped with end of the school year stuff - assessment reports (my schools are still getting permission for me to test but I have to be done in the next 11 days - I usually have 60-90 days to do testing! ach!), and progress reports (only about 40!) and all the while still seeing all my students. I have been very involved in compiling a memory book for a coworker who is retiring after about 30 years of service at the same school. Wow! I have asked my coworkers to each make a memory page to put in a book for this great lady - wow! is it fun to see what folks come up with. Of course, the best pages are ones that include the comments or drawings by the students - sooo funny! I worked with some ladies to make about 60 "favors" for the dinner on Friday night. Next, I have to compile a smaller memory book for another coworker who is transferring to another school after her position was cut in half. Then the final project is to make favors for a combination baby/wedding shower (two different ladies) - then I think I will be able to pack up my stuff and bring it home for the summer! whew - no wonder I am tired. Tonight I went to a meeting about a graduate class I am taking this summer - we were told which two books we are supposed to read ...before the class begins on the 22nd! Luckily the books look great so I am eager to read them! I am still working up the projects for my grads and congrats class this Sunday. Yep! I have been a busy bee. I'll post some new pics soon!

One last thought..John really liked his drum birthday card - he even saved it! - high praise from a 16 year old, I think!
