And It Hit Me Like.... BOOOOM!

While my little one was sleeping today, I started thinking about things I wanted to do with the rest of my summer (thinking... yeah I have quite a bit more time left, let's see what I can do). Then, when I really thought about the "huge" amount of time I had left, it kinda hit me, like hit me HARD..... I only have 3 weeks of summer vacation left! YOWZA Where on Earth did the time go? It seems like just yesterday we were all standing on the bus landing, watching as the kid taxis were rolling away, the sun glistening off of the kid taxi windows, all of us teachers waving like maniacs because we were ready for our own blissful, relaxing summer. There were my "to do" lists with home things, school things, and baby things.... did they get accomplished? Of course not! I kind of feel like a failure because I had big plans for my time, yet again ~ I got to enjoy myself; the time spent with my girl was wonderful!

I am anticipating a wonderful school year. I already know a handful of kids that are going to be in my room, and I am super stoked about having them. I also have some huge personal goals set for this school year (personal being with my own self, my house, and how I want to do my classroom this year). And, any of you who have read my blog before, and have seen a posting about any of my kiddos, you'll get to start reading all of the fun stories again! I love posting about them because I a) get to vent (my little boy with demons, yeah that was fun) and b) they crack me up (my little kid who lived in the state of Vagina and not Virginia)

So, with my last 3 weeks, I am going to have the most fun I can, not worry about my "to do" list, and start fresh in August when we go back to school. Sadly, I have to be back August 4!!! I kinda don't want to go back to school, yet again, I'm the type of person that needs to be active and have something to do. I get bored sitting around home all day. Here's to my next 3 weeks.... hopefully they're fun and full of adventure (we're taking the baby to the beach for a day soon... so that should be interesting!).

My kiddos don't start until August 25...not sure when the teachers go back, but that seems so late after how early they started when we lived down south!
