These ladies are the ladies I spent the last year of teaching with. They are the best. Right here, this is the best team I have ever worked with. We have so much fun together. We do what we need to do and get our stuff done. Most of us have taught 3rd grade together for many years! We have been through so much like weddings, parties, and babies. We hang out outside of school and our kids know each other and call each other friends too. These ladies really are some of my best friends. Since I see them everyday, they probably know the most about me. We have no secrets and our husbands know that too :). We are being split up next year and we sort of expected it. It's sad and we don't like it but we will make the best of it. I know that no matter what, we will NOT stop being friends. We may not have the same lunch period but we still have our before and after school chats to look forward too. (Which is really what makes the day). No matter where we move, no one can keep us from being friends. Nothing. This moving stuff is for the birds and we will be ok even though it sucks.
I know there are few people that can say they work with some of the greatest. I can. I feel truly blessed that I got to work with these ladies and I believe it was fate that led us all to each other because I honestly don't know what I would do without these girls in my life! So to Andrea, Becky, Laurie, Patti, and Holly, I love you all! You are what keeps me going when the going gets tough! It's the end of an era but I know we still have good times to be had. And WE will!
Remember...Chumbawumba! We will get knocked down, but we will get up again! And you better believe it!
