    Hello Lilia,
    I am so glad that your class went swimmingly well! (swimmingly=a word to help refresh you out there in the heat)
    Congratulations on your new teaching position! I agree, a nervous time but that energy fuels positive time teaching those cute cute kidos! My niece Emma will be getting a new school in a new state once the move is complete! She will be in 2nd grade. I hope your summer with your daughter is a very,very special one!
    Hugs,
    Mary

    i can relate to the nervousness. i for one can’t deal with change so i end up getting myself all worked up over something that turns out beautifully in the end.
