Every year at this time the kids get tested. At the young grades that I teach, most of the test has to be read to the kids. That's a lot of reading outloud and WAITING for the kids to finish. These tests involve reading comprehension, vocabulary, math skills, science, social studies, and sources of information. Since I have multi-age with two grades, there's no way I can read two sets of tests every day!! I would have no wind left in my sails. So I farm out the first graders to the straight first grade rooms and I give the second grade test. My kids this year rock. It has only taken them 3 days and they are DONE!! Usually the tests take at least five days with makeups, but not this year!! I'm so proud of them.

Every day so many people at work ask me how I'm I nervous, scared, happy, excited....the list goes on. I'm all of them, well not scared, but all of the other emotions. But mostly I'm just happy:) The kids are so excited for me to. They spend most of their morning circle time asking me questions about the wedding, my dress, my hair, the same questions over and over again. We hired a videographer for our wedding so I can bring the DVD into school and show the kids, but the bummer is it might not be ready in time for them to see it before school ends. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though. I know they would LOVE to see it! They are also a little upset at the sub that will be in my room when I'm gone. They're already complaining every day about it. They had the same sub for gym today and when I went to pick them up, half the class was crying. Great. That should be a fun time for them!! I keep talking about all the fun things and lessons I'm leaving for the sub, and I'm trying to bribe them with treats from me when I get back if they are good. We'll see how it goes. Keep your fingers crossed for me:)

We are meeting with the reverand who's marrying us for the last time tomorrow to go over the entire ceremony in entirety, and then I can finish and print the programs, and that's one more thing crossed off the list of things to do. Whew! There are a MILLION and half little things that are creeping up right now that I didn't think about, and I'm really trying to tackle them now instead of waiting till the last minute, which, by the way, is Kenny's style. Hehehehe.

There are about 10 loads of laundry to fold downstairs with my name all over it. Kenny "did" laundry for me yesterday, which means it goes in the washer, the dryer, and on the floor. I get to fold it. At least he washes and dries it now. So here I go to fold my evening away!!!!
