Summer can't arrive soon enough!!

This is not a homesick blog post, despite the desperation implied in the title. This is a typical teacher-at-the-end-of-the-school-year blog post, because teachers are always just as ready for summer as the students!

We are 2 weeks away from the students being finished for the school year. After that, the teachers stay behind for 3 weeks of professional development and planning and then we're FREE! I think the fact that our former schools at home are letting out for the summer this week has compounded our restlessness. The Mister and I literally spent last night looking at the accommodations we have booked for this summer's travel and found restaurants that we want to frequent at each destination.

It doesn't help that we have such awesome plans made for the vacation. We'll be starting out on the Outer Banks with the Mister's family, then a week in Nashville with my family and our friends. Then we leave for visits with grandparents in South Carolina, and friends in Portland and San Francisco. As soon as we get back from California, we're taking off for two weeks in Costa Rica! One of the hubbin's best friends will be joining us for part of that visit. We'll be surfing, hiking, and doing a whooole lot of nothing! I cannot wait!

The students have caught summer fever too. My eighth-graders are finishing up with a book study, and in the middle of last week they were asking what was up next on the agenda.

"Can we just do nothing?"

For two weeks. Sure. That won't get old fast at ALL.

I'd rather be doing nothing on the beach with the Mister than nothing in a classroom with restless students.

Eyes, on the prize, kids. Don't go squirrelly on me just yet.

Vicariously yours,
