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!
