That is all I have left of my summer vacation *sniff*sniff*! Teachers go back to work on Friday, August 17 and then the kids join us the 22. WOW...I can't believe how fast this summer went. It seems like I was just counting down the days UNTIL summer vacation and now I already have to start counting back the days until school. The latter is most definitely not as fun!! I haven't been in my classroom at all and am contemplating dragging my feet in one day next week, preferably on a nice rainy day so I don't feel like I am wasting a beach day. Usually I start getting pretty down as the summer comes to a close and I think about leaving kiddos while I go back to work. I haven't gotten quite there yet, although I am sure that may have something to do with the potty training adventures occurring at home...a break may be nice. At the same time though I get excited to see what kids will be in my class, decorating my room, and getting back into a routine. The great thing is that I do not have any more school for my masters, YEAH so I don't have to worry about giving up nights for classes and weekends for studying. I do have that small detail of completing my National Boards this year and I am sure that will keep my quite busy, but that is at least all on my own time frame.
So here's to the last two weeks of summer vacation...filling it with beach days, pools, bbqs, amusement parks, day trips, crab feasts, and everything else that summer has to offer!!
