Can you believe that it is August already. What? My days of vacation are numbered…and that number is very small.
Today I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4thgrade for her Currently. Just a quick peek at what is going on with me.
This morning I am listening to the quiet. Just sipping my coffee and spending a little mom time on the computer, on one of my last days of summer vacation.
Loving that we will be spending the weekend at one of my favorite places…Pismo Beach. We went just for the day a few weeks ago, but it just wasn’t enough. So we are spending one of our last weekends of vacation soaking up the sand and sun and spending some quality family time together.
Thinking, where has the summer gone. Has it flown by for anyone else?? I can’t believe in just a few short days it will be over. We have had some family fun. I attended some great PD training. I have had the chance to relax and recharge a little and now I am ready to meet my new class of kinders.
I am wanting a few more weeks of vacation. Do we ever really have enough time off?? I know for myself I had a to do list a mile long at the beginning of the summer, and I must admit it is probably still a half mile long. I did get some things checked off. In fact I managed to get quite a few classroom craft projects checked off my list…but my list of home jobs didn’t fare so well. I guess that shows where my priorities are…lol. I was also able to make some great memories with my boys, which are the most important things anyway!
I am sooo needing to get my room finished and my lesson plans complete. I am about 75% done with my room. I am really loving how it is coming along. I will be sharing lots of photos next week. I want to change my year-long curriculum map up a bit and switch a few of my units. I hope to work on that some during my 4+ hours riding in the car this weekend to and from the beach. Back to school is such an exciting time and is one of my favorite during the entire year.
For teachers we start back this Wednesday August 6th, then meet the teacher on Thursday the 7th and the first day of school with kiddos is on August 11th.
What have you been up to? I love to ready your comments, so let me know all about it. Don't forget to check out what everyone else is doing over at Farley's.
