It's that time again when teachers think--what am I going to do this summer?
*Take a class?
*Read novels? Just for fun.
*What am I now that I am on hiatus?
Thankfully I have a blog and blog friends and parties to go to. That will keep my a little busy.
Deanna Jump from Mrs. Jump's Class is having a party. Ten things I want to do this summer. Sounds like fun, right?
Naming some things that I want to do is a wonderful way to make sure that I am productive in June and do not wait until the end of July to do fun stuff for me and with my family.
1. Take my children bowling, to a movie and to a local zoo.
2. Participate in an online book study on Making the Most of Small Groups by Debbie Diller. The study is being organized by Mrs. Samuelson's Swamp Frogs. Mrs. Jones and I got this book in January, read some of it, but I am totally pumped to read it and "discuss" it with some of my favorite online friends.
3. Go to and cheer on my high-schooler while he plays Summer League basketball.
4. Go and cheer on my middle-schooler while he plays baseball.
5. Spend two weekends with Mrs. Jones while we learn about workstations (at a local university).
6. Summer vacation to see my parents at the end of July.
7. Go to Lake Michigan with my family. Maybe see a MLB game?
8. Read a novel. I need a recommendation. I love Karen Kingsbury, but have read EVERYTHING, so who next?
9. Deep clean my basement and organize my "stuff" that gets stuffed down there throughout the year.
10. Choose one pinterest project a week and DO IT!
Ok, now that I have a plan, I feel better. Let the summer begin!!
