Childhood.... No school!, Lazy days, swimming, playing, long car rides to the mid-west, farm and family time.
Teens... No school!, Friends, swimming, getting a tan, going out, earning some money, sleeping in!
Young adult... Teaching summer school!, Free time, new beginnings.
Thirties... No school!, time with MY kids :o), Vacations, to-do lists, new beginnings.
A bit beyond the above stated age..... No school!, To-do lists, vacations, creating, new beginnings.
So many things the same... yet so different!
So many summers of being a teacher (25!) have taught me
The to-do lists... this is definitely a love / hate thing. I put off too much to do in the summer!! Do you do that? It's great when I'm putting it off for the summer, not so great when it's time to do it!
But I do love getting things done, so I better get this one started!
My plans for this summer include:
Time with my family, sending my son off to study in China for summer (yikes!), attending a couple of great conferences (I'll share what I learn when I get back!!), and a couple of trips out of town for one nieces' graduation and one nieces' wedding! Lots of creating, (my "to-create" list is a mile long)!
And maybe a little time to relax?!
Whatever your plans for summer are, I hope you get to take some time off and and breathe a little too, you deserve it!!
