School's out for summer....

Happy First Day of Summer!!!!

Friday was (finally!!!) our last day of school! So strange to say that considering the way this school year went for me both professionally and personally. I am both looking forward to the short summer break but also eager to start my 4th year as a middle school English teacher. Along with a week-long institute on Reading in the Content Area next week and my new part-time job at my local Banana Republic (yay for 50% off!!!), here is a list of the following things I will be filling my time with the next several weeks:

  • Lake George, NY for the 4th of July holiday
  • Teaching summer school  (I'll find out this week if there is a need for a middle school position this summer)
  • Landscaping the front of our home (finally!!!)
  • Reading... lots of reading
  • Outlet shopping in Tilton, NH while visiting our friend's at their Lake Winnipesaukee "cottage"
  • Boston!!!
  • Antiquing; a new hobby????
  • Drum Corp show in August with my dad
  • Old Sturbridge Village reenactment
  • Updating the interior by painting my office and adding some details around the house
Any fun plans as you celebrate the first official day of summer???


  1. Mr D gets sad today as it means the days get shorter from now on and he hates the dark winter evenings. Yeah i know. way to look on the bright side lol

  2. That sounds like a great summer! I miss New England in the summertime. Lake Winnipesaukee is fabulous!

  3. I'll be around Lake George for 4th of July, they have such great fireworks! I'm jealous you're going to Boston, I won't be heading there till September to check out BC for grad school- it's my #1 choice right now.
