Well, my first week back at work is over. Luckily for me the school is early out on Fridays. The students are great and I already know almost all of their names. Unfortunately, I will only be driving them one more week.
This was a week that I had not planned to work. I had scheduled swim lessons for 3 of the kids.
So I spent the week doing my bus run then hurrying home to hurry the kids to their lessons. The lessons were between 10 and 12. Then 4 of the days we took lunch with us to the pool and stayed for an hour and a bit of swimming. The day ended with a rush to get back to my bus and do my run.
On Monday Kieran had a dentist appointment. I actually had to leave him in the hygienist’s chair so I wouldn’t be late for my school run. I handed him my credit card and all the money I had… $2.10, which is luckily exactly enough money to ride the bus.
The chores got put off and put off, but finally they too got done.
So, all in all it wasn’t a bad week at all! There was loads of stuff to fill my days to make it feel like summer still and I managed to get in some quality time with those who wanted it.
Although my summer break is over, my kids’ isn’t and I think I managed to keep their week feeling like summer break.
