It is summer break! A time that all students look forward to, parents are glad for a little break from the daily habits of school and teachers take a quick breath and begin planning for the next year.
I promised, oh say a month or more ago now, for an update about our parent book that we made for our Parent Appreciate Luncheon. That post will come soon (before summer is over, I do promise that!). Right now, I am being an extreme multi-tasker...walking on the treadmill with my nifty homemade laptop holder on it and writing this update.
What is that you said? You need a picture?
Well, I have a Cleveland Browns themed basement (remember, I LOVE Fantasy Football. Oh, and real football of course!) I have all of my sewing stuff set up in the background. It has been severely neglected for weeks, until yesterday. Of course, I can't exercise without little kiddos 'helping' me :)
Ok, you can stop laughing. Maybe I'm motivating? Exercising against all the odds, lol.
Since Preschool Graduation, right before Memorial Day, I have been taking college classes to receive my Grades 4-5 Endorsement. I have completed my Mathematics course (which I got 100% in! I know, bragging!) Right now, I am taking a course about teaching Reading & Literacy to Grades 4 & 5, and a course about teaching Science & Social Studies to Grade 4. It is very, very time consuming, even though it is all online. I have three more classes to take this summer still, and then I can teach up to Fifth Grade. In the Fall, I will begin my Master's Program. I am leaning towards getting my Master's in General Special Education.
So, after WEEKS of unending homework, I decided to take a break yesterday and finally do some sewing. I needed some 'me' time to relax a little.
If you haven't checked out my Facebook page, go do it now and 'LIKE' the page. It is called An Interesting Mix. I will post a few pictures here of some of the new stuff I have been working on.

So, it is back to school work tomorrow for me. I have to write some lesson plans and read some 4th grade books :)
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer breaks so far. I'm trying to balance all of it with spending lots of time with my kiddos also. Needless to say, I haven't been getting a lot of sleep. So, if you run in to me at the store, don't be offended if I look at you like I don't know you. It will click soon. My brain is working overtime right now :)
Enjoy this weather! It is finally sunny and warm!
