Well…my summer is officially nearing the end. It’s very sad for me to admit. I love teaching, but I really love summer vacation. Oh well…I guess all good things must come to an end.
We’ve had a very eventful summer. We started off with a bang and left a couple of days after school let out for our baseball extravaganza trip up the East coast. Since we returned from that fabulous vacation, we’ve spent our weekends at the beach with family, working on our first construction project – a desk!, and our annual family vacation to the ranch. I also took a few days to spend some time with my mom and enjoyed lounging by the pool at the Omni Hotel in Dallas. We then made a weekend get-away to San Antonio for a college friend’s wedding where it was great to catch up with some old friends from far away.
I had great plans for this summer to paint our bedroom, clean my carpets, generally just clean out and organize…and unfortunately I didn’t get much of that done. I cleaned out our closed and donated 3 HUGE bags of old clothes, shoes, & purses to Goodwill; so I feel much better about our closet now. As soon as our desk is finished, I will get to organize the office and get everything put in it’s place in there…can’t wait for that!
Now that school is just a few days away, I’m focusing on getting some new clothes & shoes and beginning to think about what I want my classes and classroom to look like this year. Starting school always feels like I’m beginning a marathon and I never feel quite ready…but we always finish strong.
Goodbye summer…hello school year!
