Already a month gone


Remember when summer vacation used to be three months long?  When school didn’t start until after Labor Day?  Ah…those were the days. This year I have to be back at school on something like August 15! There are only seven weeks of break left.  Seven.  And two of those are spoken for – a week of student council camp (yes, I know I gave it up, but I’m on the committee for the state, so I’m sort of expected to be at camp) and a week of AP training.  Which leaves only five weeks.  Five weeks to mentally, physically, and emotionally prepare for the coming year.  Because let’s face it, as a teacher, summer isn’t about taking a break from school.  It’s about taking some days off and then thinking about, reading for, planning out the coming year.  I will have three preps next year, one of them brand new to me, and I have a ton of work to do.  I just hate the thought of using MY time to do it. I’d much rather do what I do now – run, watch a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, sip coffee, cruise the internets, read for pleasure, play with Ainsley, clean up the house (did I say that?!?), maybe run to the store, and generally let my day do its own thing. You know…stuff like this:
