My summer pretty much ended today. I’ll be working in my classroom for the next few days, because if I waited until I officially must report to work (next Monday), I would NEVER be ready for the first day of school. I’ve learned over the years that summer ends much sooner than I want it to because I have SO much to do, and we don’t get any ‘official’ time to do it. So, today we spent all day hanging with friends down in the San Diego area – we ate cupcakes, played hide-n-seek, jumped on the trampoline, the girls swung on a tire swing and climbed up into our friends’ tree house – you name it! It was like a last official lazy-but-fun-filled day of summer.
