Here at McAlister-Gray, we believe that life is more than the daily grind; it’s living and laughing and loving every day. To celebrate those moments in life with you, we created this blog. Come giggle with us (or even shed a tear) at the beauty and crazy of the moments we share.
A Tribute to Our Exhausted Teachers
You have fooled me no longer, for I can see right through your ingenious plan.
This end of the school year chaos is brilliant, and you deserve accolades for filling it to the brim with award ceremonies, end of the year parties, a ridiculous amount of projects due, exams, and late night scavenger hunts through the house to find that one misplaced library book. Every year we parents mentally prep for what May brings; yet, May never fails to be a thorn in our side. By the last day of school, we are begging to be released from the arduous schedule of getting our angels out the door. We are pining for the peace of summer and would do almost anything for it. But alas, you already knew this would happen. You needed us to crave the very break which brings sanity to YOUR life. As you astutely navigated these last few weeks, we were like putty in your hands. Hats off to you, my teacher friends, for your trickery. Summer looks like such bliss, and in our desperation, amnesia strikes. We forget the insanity of entertaining children who are home ALL day long. Let’s be honest, teacher appreciation week should be rescheduled to the third week of the summer, for that is when we truly appreciate all that you do! Your dedication to our little ones is a blessed treasure, and one that we could never truly repay. Your sacrifice of time and effort deserves a lifetime of our gratitude. But most importantly, may this summer bring the relaxation you have earned, for we are going to need you rested up come August!
