With the last day of July here I am reminded of something one of my fellow kindergarten teachers told me years ago. She said that summer is a teacher's weekend. June is like a Friday. You are still working in June but the end of the month when school gets out is like a Friday afternoon after a long week of school. July is like Saturday. There is still nothing but time to do all those things you promise yourself you will do. August is a Sunday. You don't have to work but you spend the month getting ready for the year ahead much like you spend Sunday's during the school year getting ready for the week ahead.
Well, my friends I am approaching the Sunday of my summer vacation. Oh, how I love my summer's off. Around mid August I start getting the itch to go back and set things up. I'm not quite ready for it yet. I so enjoy my time at home. I enjoy sleeping! I enjoy the slow pace of it all. I hope "Sunday" goes by slowly. I'm not ready for Monday!
