The End

Tomorrow I will finish my eleventh year of teaching. Where those 11 years went is beyond me!

I am so very glad this year is over. It has been long and challenging. I am looking forward to a fun, relaxing summer with my family and friends.

Some of my plans include:

*shopping and lunches out alone and with friends
*a 2-day getaway with just the hubby to Chicago for our 10 year wedding anniversary
*a little mini-vacation with the kiddos...not sure where yet
*Jungle Jim's, Ikea, Newport Aquarium
*house cleaning
*new mulch on the flower beds
*Children's Museum
*hanging out with my wonderful kids!

Wish me luck tomorrow. It's sure to be a long, emotional day.

Ooh, and check back here Thursday. I have a fun little summer giveaway I put together to celebrate the start of my summer vacation!

Pin It!

Hip hip hooray!
Love your list! Top of my list is finding a Sonic and eating there. We make attainable goals up in here!
I'm up for almost anything on your list. You can have your hubby getaway (although I'm severely jealous!) and your house cleaning and mulch (I have my own issues there!) but the rest? We are so there! Addi gets easier to take places every year, and I'm so excited to be mostly tube free this summer!

I'm in my 24th year of teaching and I have no idea where those years went!!!!!! I live in Australia and at the moment we are in the middle of the school year and it's report card writing time.. I know you feel my pain....
Love your blog. Enjoy your summer break. I know you need it. Only 21 weeks until summer break for me..

I just finished my 13th year....I still feel like a newbie, but I am not anymore.

Our lists look similar!!

Love the list... makes me want to make a list of my own... I am SOOOO glad summer is finally here! I also can't believe that I've officially finished my 12th year of teaching! It's gone by so quickly it seems!! Here's to the best summer ever! :-)
