School's out for summer,
So many things to get done,
but not enough time.

Yesterday was our last day of school. The last month has been more than a little hectic.
But field trips, assemblies, awards, exams, cleaning, and finally graduation are behind me and summer lies ahead. There will be a week at Johnson and Wales University in RI for an educator forum, a week in Pennsylvania to visit family and attend a wedding, and week in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with daughters, son in law, and granddaughter. And when I'm not away I will be spending two days a week with our beautiful, energetic, and amazing granddaughter. I will be able to spend quality time with my husband, and not be to busy or too tired to carry on a conversation. In between I hope to complete a few projects that have been awaiting my attention. And before I know it August 26th will be here and I will be back at school starting my 41st of year of teaching. I still enjoy teaching, and feel that I do make a difference in the lives in of my students. They tell me that they will now be able to feed themselves, and that they will think very carefully about becoming a parent in the future.
