I have three weeks of vacation left. Bummed:( I know, I know, teachers should just be lucky they get "summers" off, but in reality, it's not 3 months anymore, more like 8 weeks for teachers and 11 for kids. It gets less and less every year. And we work 10 months of the year, and get paid for that 10 months, most of us just choose to have it stretched out over the summer time, so we are not getting paid to not work. I am not going to make this a pity post for teachers, it just seems that we get less and less vacation time every summer and we still have no valid reason to go back to work if the kids don't start back until after Labor Day. Just stinks, that's all I'm saying. So, in these three weeks, I have lots to do. A few projects left to finish (start) around the house, a visit to the zoo, probably another weekend or two at the lake house (inlaws) and every single second I can spend with my little man I will. This summer has been so fun with Carson! Last summer he was a newby, and as much as I loved that, there was no playing. A completely different story now! We play constantly! Kenny even cuts his work short to hang out with us and play around outside. What joy! I can honestly say that this is the first summer since I've been teaching that we spent lots of time relaxing at home. What a treat!
