My summer is officially over. I'm not sure how that happened. It's still too hot to go to school!
A few things I will miss about the summer:
*being the last one in my family awake in the morning
*wearing shorts and flip flops all day
*tending to the garden
*playing with my kids and going swimming
*an hour a day to myself for crafting
Things to look forward to about the new year:
*eager children ready to learn
*chatting with my wonderful co-workers
*watching my students learn and grow
*new crayons and markers
Reading Kristin's post helped to remind me why I teach and why the summer must come to an end. Bonus, teaching involves a lot of great crafts and art - like the backpack tags above.
