“The summer is going by so slow,” said no teacher EVER!

Where did the summer go?  As much as we teachers love our jobs, the summer break never seems quite long enough!  I have only two weeks left to accomplish everything on my summer to-do list which included finishing my youngest daughter’s first year scrapbook (she’s 6), getting all of our pictures printed and placed in albums, and organizing all of my cupboards and closets.  Oh well, there’s always next summer!

What I did accomplish was getting to spend time with my two girls and my wonderful husband! Our family traveled to Hilton Head, South Carolina.  We rented bikes and rode around the island all week.  It was my first time there.  We’ve always gone to Myrtle Beach in the past.  Hilton Head was a nice change.  It was so relaxing and just beautiful!  We will definitely go back!  My husband and I were lucky enough to take a second mini-vacation to Keystone, Colorado for a wedding.  Colorado was absolutely breathtaking.  Every picture we took looked like a postcard.  If you haven’t been there, I would highly recommend it!hh3hh1

My daughters on Take Your Child to Work Day – future teachers!

Now, it’s almost back to reality!  Sigh.  At the end of last school year, I swore to myself that I was NOT going to go into school over the summer.  However, my little girls, future teachers in the making, have been begging me to go in one day so that they can “help”me.  So, how can I say no to these little sweeties?!  Since I left my room pretty organized, I am thinking I will take full advantage of the copier and prep all of my Back to School BASICS that I use during the first month of kindergarten.  In my next blog post, I will share with you everything I print off for the start of Kindergarten!

However many days you have left until you start back, ENJOY EVERY MINUTE!  You’ve earned it!
