Today was the last official day of school for the teachers of my school district. All the classes are done for the year, our rooms are packed, and our grades are entered. This is always a bittersweet time of year for me.
Confession 1: I am already looking forward to next school year, and have started to make a list of things that I want to work on over the summer to be ready for next year.

Summer is always a great time to get caught up on the always mounting list of books that I want to read. I tend to spend part of my day down on the dock reading, napping, and swimming. Really it is a rough life.
Confession 2: You may have read that I posed a summer challenge for myself: to swim ever day between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Well, I have been waiting to tell you, my avid reader, I have failed at my swim challenge. I made it about three days in, and then got busy and forgot. There is always next year, right?!

Enjoy ~SJ

Summer doesn't start June 20. It's never to late to modify a challenge.

I was thinking the same thing: why not modify to every day of summer vacation?

I not only have plans for how to improve next year, but also who I need to talk to this summer to make it happen. You're right-- when we leave on June 17 saying "Who cares about Fall?" it's time to not come back.

Good news is that you have the summer to yourself! I'm so jealous!
