I’m so tickled that Summer Break 2016 has finally arrived! The students had their last of classes last week and then I had a few teacher workdays this week. However, now I can finally say that I’m on summer break!
Summer Break 2016
Shew. You may recall in my post on the life of a special education teacher that I described how difficult this past school year was for me. I honestly feel like some weeks (months?) just disappeared for me. I can’t report on what I did because I did so much that I’ve forgotten that actual tasks at hand. I can say that I don’t feel like I have ever worked harder in my entire life.
There were times when Summer Break 2016 seemed like it would never arrive. It took everything I had to keep going at school. Some weeks, I had literally no time for anything else. I hated to desert my blog and online life for periods of time. However, it wasn’t just this place that I let get dusty with cobwebs. My house became literally dusty due to lack of love as well.
Summer Break 2016 is just what this teacher needs. For the first time in years, I don’t have my entire summer planned out. In years past, I’ve had week after week of trips. However, after this exhausting school year and with my fall wedding quickly approaching, I’ve decided to take a breather this summer. I’m taking one short trip with my mom this summer and that’s it. After that, I’ll be home relaxing or planning the wedding.
I’m excited for the chance to just sit and chill. I’m also looking forward to getting back into blogging and social media. I have much I’d like to share about my experience at Disney Social Media Moms as well as other new products to introduce y’all to. Sadly, I’m also a bit behind in the wedding planning area. So, I will be doing lots of that this summer too.
So, what do you have planned for Summer Break 2016?
