Can’t wait for summer fun. Ready!
I am so ready for summer to be here! I am sure you will tire of me saying that in the next couple of weeks, but I’m going to have to say it anyways!
I am finishing up grading at one of my teaching jobs (the full time one, so there is much more grading to do) and I have two more trips to reconcile and I am done there for the summer. My other teaching job has another two weeks to go, but my classes are mostly just listening to students talk, so it isn’t too bad. But, I’m at that stage where I just want it to be done.
The picture above is from last summer and that joy captures summer for me. I am looking forward to swim lessons, hanging out at the pool with a book (on my iPad probably, but a book all the same), trips to Discovery Kingdom for the day (we got season passes again and Bean is big enough to go for longer periods of time and hopefully ride a few more rides this year), vacation trips, and I may even try a short camping trip this summer (with some others who have camping stuff, because I don’t have any). My goal this summer is to (1) read a lot – I have missed reading and I want to take the hours and hours per week I usually spend prepping for class, grading and teaching reading books, (2) spend time doing fun stuff with Bean – this is her last summer of official pre school status and I want to make sure we do a lot of activities and crafts and such, and (3) establish a household routine that works for our family. I really want to prepare this summer for next year and have some routines in place that will keep us ready for school each day – both Bean’s school and my school – keep the house somewhat clean and organized and give us a more relaxed work week than I’ve experienced in the past.
So, that’s my summer plan – what’s yours? Any goals you have for summer? What’s on your bucket list?
