Ode To Summah

As summer draws to an end I was compelled to take a moment to say how much she has mean't to me the last couple of months.

I can honestly say this is the first summer I've actually taken a mental break.  Don't get me wrong, I did bring a lot of work home but worked on it throughout the summer at my own pace.  I also added new products to my TPT Store.  I only went into school a handful of times which is SO unlike me!

There are SO many reasons why I absolutely love this time of year and I thought I'd reflect...

Gone will be the days of...

*Finally adjusting to not going 50 miles per hour
*No definite schedule, routine, or plans
*Sleeping in until 6
*Bathroom breaks throughout the day (instead of getting home and realizing how badly I had to go)
*Quiet mornings sipping my coffee (not one complete gulp)
*Not drying or straightening my hair (went the entire summer)
*Not having to get dressed (as in presentable)
*Camp days on my float and having a nice glow 
*Feeling completely relaxed
*NO ironing (the one chore I could do without)

Now that vacation is winding down I do look forward to meeting my new kiddos and getting back into a routine!

I've been in this week buckling down and getting ready for the start of the year.  I LOVED seeing my shiny floor and clean room.

Here are a few pictures of it all put back together.

Our kiddos come back on September 3rd but I'll be completing the Observation Survey on August 28th and 29th.  I'll see you then!!


  1. 6:00 isn't sleeping in. :) Enjoy your last few days!

    1. Hahaha, I agree. As I teenager I could easily sleep until noon. Now 6 or 7 is considered sleeping in!!

  2. I'm with ya, love being able to go to the bathroom when I want! We start back next week but kids come on the 20th. Bye bye summer!

    1. Have a great start back!! Glad I have a bit longer.
