This weekend was not what I was expecting. Saturday we lost my grandfather. He had been battling many ailments over the last few years, so it is comforting (to a degree) that he is no longer in pain. His life was full and he was well loved and will be missed! I am taking comfort in his strong faith and in knowing he was a man well deserving of a spot in heaven!
We will be heading down south for a memorial in a couple of weeks and then my uncle will be taking his ashes to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. The Navy was my "pap's" life, so resting among America's finest meant a lot to him. My hubby can still hear him telling stories about his Navy days! I am so honored that I will have two grandfathers buried at Arlington.
I have a busy week to get to! My students begin their state testing tomorrow. I think I am more nervous than they are about the whole thing. I know I have taught them everything they need, but I still wonder if there was more I could do. I hate that these tests are so important now, but I am also curious to see how my kids perform! It is a crazy time to be a teacher for sure!
Here is what we have planned for this week:
Breakfasts: Cereal, Oatmeal, Biscuits, Muffins, Pancakes, French Toast, Waffles, Fruit
Lunches: Ham or PB & J Sandwiches, Leftovers, Fruit or Veggies, String Cheese, Hard Boiled Eggs, Granola Bars, Fruit Leather, Homemade Chewy Bars
