Twas the Night Before the Last Day of School before the Holidays ~All My Bags were Packed ~Congrats Early Grads ~~Thank you, my Friend

We have this little tree by our front door.
When I got home from school yesterday,
there were packages under that tree!
It was the perfect ending to an energy packed last day of the semester.

My day started like this, from left to right,
crockpot and soup ingredients,
gifts for my co-FACS teachers,
candy canes for my students,
school bag for CHS,
project bag for the ATEC Academey,
staff computer,
lab supplies,
and what was left of my sanity!

In my Foods class we made
Fa la la la Lava Cakes.


Students exercised their creativity with syrup, cocoa, 
and powdered sugar on their dessert plates.
If you like to make them yourself,

Fifty-five of our high school seniors graduated early yesterday.
We celebrated with one of our own...
and had to take another Advocate Group photo.
Congratulations, Caitlyn!

Super Study Soup of the Week,
Super easy and Super delicious.
Courtney's Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Seriously, all you have to do is open cans and stir it all together.
This time I added a "chunk" of Velveeta Cheese,
and the seniors said it was better than ever!

After a day of final projects, 
end of course exams,
checking in books,
collecting student fees,
finalizing my SLO,
cleaning up my classrooms,
and preparing for the new semester...
I was more than ready to pull into my driveway!

Thank you,
my dear friend, Lorie.
(I look forward to our coffee date next week.)

I hope you all enjoy some time for 
rest and relaxation this holiday season.

Take care,
~Natalie
