This time of year is definitely one of the biggest perks of being a teacher! My summer's are usually pretty busy. I'm half way through my summer and things have finally started settling down. So my top ten list is all the things that have kept me busy so far:
1. Camp Rocks
2. Brown-Looney-Thornton Reunion
We haven't all been together in years. They are very dear friends and we had so much fun spending time together.
This is kind of like a vacation bible school but cooler! The kids take performing arts type classes (drama, dancing, singing, acting, set design, etc) and work all week putting on a full length play that they perform at the end of the week. Amanda and I taught several classes. They were...uh...interesting.
After reading this post, I decided to try it out for myself. I have to say that I'm happy with the outcome. I left out the sea salt that she added, though because I don't sweat that much.
I don't get out to see many movies unfortunately, but my old roommate and I (with her husband) went to see Date Night. We loved it! We laughed the whole time.
This was definitely a first for me! My sister and I decided to go pick blueberries at Mercier Orchards and we loved it! What we didn't love was the scorching temperatures. Oh my gosh, it was so stinkin' hot! The blueberries were delicious and they were huge!! My little niece ate more than we picked.
It's not summer to me without a trip to the beach. Our family goes to the beach every summer and we have been for over 20 years. We always go with another family who I considered to be my extended family.
9. Two baby shower cakes and birthday cupcakes for my niece and nephew.
10. Another possible mini vaca with one of my old college roommates!
