I have to admit that I have truly enjoyed this summer, more so than any other summer off. This is for lots of reasons!!
#1 reason, my kids. We haven't had a summer off together yet. This summer we made lots of memories and had a ton of fun. The kids and I spent lots of quality time together and took lots of naps. Our summer vacation was great and I can't wait to do it again.
#2. I actually GOT a summer, for the first time since Eli was about 7 months old. This has been really fun to just relax and not work.
#3. I actually did think too much about school, ok, at least less then I have other summers. That's not to say that I didn't go to many trainings, but I actually took some off my plate and I haven't been to my room ONCE since school was out. That is truly a record!!
But after all the fun we've had, I think it's time to get back to thinking about school. I get the great opportunity to teach first grade this fall. Ok at first, I wasn't sure I would think it was a great oopportunity LOL. But after some time to digest, I'm really SO excited. I'm ready for a new adventure. I do, however, keep getting warned that this is the hardest grade I'll ever teach. Like, over and over I hear that. But I have a great and generous team and I'm glad to work with them.
Most of all, it's time to get us on a schedule I think. I do enjoy the lazy days, but Eli has missed school SO much and Owen hardly remembers it LOL. So, we need to get them back in the swing of things soon.
So, these last few weeks of official summer will be spent getting things put together for school, getting a schedule in place and getting my brain ready to start 10 minutes earlier. Here's hoping it'll all fall into place!
