Oh where oh where did my summer go!
Oh where did it go??
Well being a teacher I have started my school year early because here in Florida school starts in August and our county is one of the earliest!!!
It seems like just a few weeks I was closing up my room and now here I am again getting ready to receive my students next week. Oh well such is life and I guess I just need to change my state of mind and go with the flow!!
My summer was busy with my MIL, who broke her hip and I was with her most of the time so my husband could work. So most of my days were either at the hospital or the nursing home with her.
Then I was getting my son ready for his big move to California (where he will be continuing his education-masters) and hopefully find a job. We were in California for one week getting him settled and the last day was very hard for all of us. However, he is committed to doing this and wants to reach his goals. He has our blessings and support and of course I miss him and my older son that is in Delaware but I will once again move forward and pray for their ell being an future. I miss my youngest the most due to all the health issues he had in the past and that drew us so much closer together, but he is a very determined young man!! I am so proud of him.
so I am back in circulation and now trying to focus again on my health and continue with my goals. Thank you all for the well wishes on my sparkversary!!!
Even though I'm retired I can still feel a bit of stress this time of year thinking about school starting again. I loved my summers, but then would begin to get excited about how I would do new and creative things in the classroom each year. I do kind of miss teaching, but I do also love being retired. Just a new stage of life.
Your sons are not in close proximity but I know they are right there with you in spirit. 13 days ago
Your summer sure wasn’t restful but it definitely would have been worse if you had not been available to help. The stress in a situation like that is terrible. I hope your school year goes smoothly. 16 days ago
Wow, I go back the 13th, the kids come back the 20th and I was lamenting our early start. When I started staff came back the week before Labor Day, and students the day after. It seems that it has been inching up on us each year. 17 days ago
Today is the last day of July......I feel like summer is flying by, so I can just imagine how fast it's going by for you if you are already back at school. Some of the most influential people in my life have been my teachers. Hats off to you for choosing such an impactful career. Hope you get a great group of kids and have an amazing school year!!! Glad to have you back sparking!! 17 days ago
Hats off to you for being a teacher. You didn't mention what grade level/subject matter. My daughter is a high-school history teacher, so I know of the early start and late endings. I often babysit the grandsons so she can get her school work done when SIL is working on Saturday and they can be a family on Sunday.
I have a feeling your sons will be fine as they have had an excellent example.
