Wrapping Up

I cannot believe this is the last week of school for my kids! It feels like the end of an era because next year I will go back to school with them... Rather, I'll go back to the classroom.

Yup.

I got a teaching job for the fall.

Our summer is going to be short. School starts for me on August 13th (no students until the 20th though) and for my kids on August 14th.

We'll spend time in Wisconsin, Minnesota (just Matt and I), and Michigan this summer. There will be swimming, gymnastics, bowling (!), basketball, and misc. day camp. We're maaaaybe (I hope!) going to swing a weekend in St. Louis. On Wednesday a swing set is being professionally installed in our backyard. I'm taking two online classes to keep my teaching license current. I'll transition my Vice President/Volunteer Coordinator roles with the PTO to the new person and try to get a handle on co-President duties.

We're doing summer fast and furious this year.
Come on Summer! We're ready!
And you?

Wow! So much great stuff- it is going to be a whirlwind but for good reason. Good luck on the job and can't wait to hear about your summer adventures- you know, when you blog in your free time ;)

Congrats, Kelsey. I want to hear all about your job. I'm so excited/scared about my own it would be comforting to hear what you are up to transitioning.

I hope you will find time to update us on how you (and everyone) is handling your job! Maybe I will take inspiration from it, since I've been thinking more and more about going back.
