Teachers have lives

Young children truly find it hard to believe that teachers have lives outside of school. Although at times I feel like I have no life since I devoted most of my time to school. Summer has been and will continue to be that time when I can get the balance back in my life. This is also a time for change.

So, what have I been up to this summer?
First of all, sleeping in! Its need to hear that awful alarm clock. I feel much more rested.

I started the summer bowling league. This will be my second summer being involved with that. My average is currently a 109. Not bad, but could use some improving.

Playing Bunco with the ladies at my church. Its actually a year long thing, but its just more fun during the summer.

The biggest change for me is that I am buying a house. That in itself keeps me busy with paperwork and arranging meetings

Cleaning Cleaning Cleaning. I have accumulated a lot of stuff and its time to purge some of it. Some of it will be dontated to Goodwill. Some will go back to school, and the rest....trash.

Reading. Both for pleasure and professional development. I've got a Bible study I am doing this summer and then I plan to reread Teaching with Intention.

Serving Others. I am trying something new this summer. Its called Angel Food Ministries.

Cooking and baking. Now that I have more time, I can experiment more and try new recipes. My newest this summer was my orange chicken dish. I modified the classic white sauce into an orange flavored one. The best was all natural. I used real fresh squeezed oranges instead of the juice from the carton.
