Celebrate Sunday!

Three things I’m celebrating from this past week:

 

1.  Summer break!  Everyone else finished the school year two weeks ago, but my extended days mean that I didn’t finish until Thursday.  This was one tough school year and I was glad to finally see it end.  Now I get to enjoy a few weeks of sun and fun with my boy!

 

2.  PLNs.  The media specialists in Boone County had two trainings and a fabulous luncheon during our extended days, so I spent lots of time geeking out.  Sometimes being the only librarian in the building is lonesome, but I know that if I have a question or a problem, I can turn to this fabulous group of people and find support in no time.  My school also hosted the Kentucky Reading Project this past week, so I had the opportunity to see lots of passionate teachers discussing literacy and learning from one another.  Sometimes, I get so caught up in the issues of my students that I don’t realize other schools face the same issues.  It was inspiring to see the groups work together to come up with new solutions to old problems.  (P.S.  If you are a literacy teacher in Kentucky and you’ve never done KRP, DO IT!  It has been one of the best experiences of my career).

 

3.  Family visits.  Two of my mother-in-law’s sisters came up this past weekend and brought kids and grandkids.  Beckham and I tagged along on their trips to the aquarium and the zoo and had a great time.  Pretty much all of my family still lives here in Northern Kentucky, so saying, “my family is in from out of town,” is new to me.  It was a great visit and I hope they come back very soon!
