Today is the official halfway mark of my summer vacation, and I have to say that I’m loving it!!! While I absolutely love teaching and love my students, there is just nothing like being home for the summer. As you can see below, we’ve really been roughing it! Now don’t be jealous of our super fancy pool!
The month of June was a little crazy for us, but I can’t complain, because we had a lot of fun! We got to spend a week at the beach with my extended family, which is always a good time. There is absolutely no where in this world I would rather be than at the beach. There is just something about it that I LOVE!
I think my daughter has inherited my love for the beach, because I truly believe she would have just stayed there forever. Between playing in the sand and “swimming” in the ocean, she was a very happy girl!
After the beach we also got to spend a little time at Nana and Granddaddy’s house, which she also loves. I really do think she’s a farm girl at heart, because other than the beach her other favorite things are riding horses and looking at cows. We also try to go the lake any chance that we get. I wasn’t sure if we’d get out much this summer since I’m now in my third trimester, but the water feels so good, especially on these HOT, HOT days.
I have been able to get a little work accomplished too! One of my newest projects was Essential Questions Posters for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I don’t have a lot of display space in my classroom, but we are required to post our essential questions, so I thought these might come in handy!
