May Is Over....June Is Here

....And time for a new Calendar Journal.

I have faithfully kept up with three months, and I am ready for June's calendar.

June brings a batch of mixed emotions.

It's the end of 12 year stint of teaching fourth grade and the beginning of a new career yet to be determined.

It's the end of claiming Texas as home for 37 years and having to tell people I live in Missouri (fortunately that is still one month away but the packing has begun.)

Saying goodbye to my students was sad, but saying goodbye to my colleagues was even harder especially when the principal called me up to say a few words. I eeked out a few sentiments but not without a few tears....Although me and tears - we are no strangers.

June promises to be super hot so I predict a lot of inside time and comments about dance classes will dominate my June calendar.

We shall see.

Big 'HUG' for you.....I shall keep you in my prayers for peace as you pack and get ready for your journey. Take care of yourself.

Saying goodbye - even if the 'new' has bright horizons and positiveness in it - is always kinda sad. I said goodbye a lot in my life... I know how that 'bittersweet' feels... good luck packing dearest!!! (And I love the purple-pink month calender!)

Great May page. I'm sure it was hard to keep up with, with school coming to a close. Can't wait to see June.

Good-byes are always difficult but moves can open doors we never expected. I'll be thinking of you as you prepare for your new adventure. I love your calendar journal. The colors are so pretty. What a great way to record life's little (and big) moments.
