I'm Going to Do More!

  When I got back from Midwest adventures last week, I found a letter from my student, Makayla.  She drew herself at the beach and listed off several things she has done this summer--beach, Six Flags, moon bounce.  To close out her list of summer fun, she added, "And I'm going to do more!"  Such optimism for the summer fun that still lies ahead.  Who knows what the remaining days of summer could bring?  Pool?  Movies?  Mini golf?  Maybe even catching a turtle.

  I, on the other hand, am not going to "do more" in the summer fun department.  Yes, work has started back up again for teachers, and we'll be at it for another two weeks still while the kids dream up plans for their last hurrah.

  For those of you out there still on summer break--go forth!  Do more!

We made our last trip to the Drive In last night to see Despicable Me and Dinner For Schmucks. And I think we'll hit the amusement park a few more times.

Sorry to rub it in. :)

Oh man, why do you have to go back 2 weeks before the kids? That's crazy! We go back a day before! (Not that I'm not in a bunch before that, but at least it's my choice).

Do you really have two weeks of professional development and stuff before the kiddos come back? I thought one week was torture enough :)

I hear you on the 2 weeks -- I have 2 weeks starting next Monday...ugh!! I'm looking forward to my kids and getting back into my room, but definitely not the 2 weeks of sitting and listening.

I know the feeling, it is time to get back at it.

I am at the point where the "do more" was camping these past four days....my kids go back on Monday, and I will "do more!" on my own for a few weeks, until my job at the school starts up!
