Twenty-two more days of school! It's exhilarating. I haven't had a summer off since I was in high school. I've held at least part-time work since the summer I turned 16. In college I took classes and worked 2-3 jobs. Then there was full-time work for the state government, no summers off there. Then I started working on my Master's and worked full-time and took classes in the summer. Last summer I had a new baby and finished my last 7 hours of graduate work. This is my first summer off and I'm so excited! It works out to be about 8 weeks off (with conferences and some summer work) but I am thrilled to be able to spend some real time with my kids. Days in a row of us doing things together as we choose.
We're going to have to get into a routine because I'm a terrible housekeeper and can be an impatient mom. I want us to do lots of fun things like going to the zoo and running through the sprinkler. I'd also love to please the hubby and keep the house sparkling clean. The two don't really go together do they? Still, it's so fun to finally have something awesome to look forward to!
