The End of Summer


Today is my last day of summer vacation.  I go back to school tomorrow.  We have teacher workdays Thursday and Friday, then the students come back on Monday.  Where has my summer gone?  It really feels like the school year just ended last week.  I always think of summer as being three months off, but we really only got two months off.  I am not ready for school to start back.  Smart-mouthed kids, lazy students, and early mornings...YUCK!

I'm going to spend my last day of freedom reading.  This hasn't been the best summer; it's actually been pretty stressful.  However, some of my stresses have recently been relieved, and I was just starting to recover and relax some.  Now it all comes to an end.

My hope is that this will be a great school year, and that the students that I am dreading dealing with this year won't be as bad as I expect.

This is terrible! "When I was your age" school didn't start until after labor day.

After labor day should be the rule...Too damn early!!! And they will be the same students, by and large, that you had last year...so, is any change anticipated??????

Even teachers get the pre-first day of school jitters. I've heard it from other teacher-friends.

Man, I am GLAD I am not doing my job at your school! We are scrambling to be ready for teachers to return next week, and students the Tuesday after Labor Day. School in AL in the heat of August! Whew!
Peace <3

Remember thoughts are things! You WILL have a great year. And yes, the summer has flown by. My kids started school yesterday. :)

I wish you a good academic year, and I also wish that all of the students with whom you have to work look like the very presentable young man pictured above! :-)

I don't know if this link will work--it essentially says, optimistic people live longer and healthier. So--look on the bright side, fresh start, fresh audience, fresh mind. Blessings and prayers!
