I can’t deny it. Having the summer off is a great perk of my job. However, I’m a teacher in part because I like school. I like community, and I like structure. So there’s something about the first few days of summer vacation that makes me a little squirrely.
I have projects in mind, books I want to read, a house that could use cleaning, and a one year old to take care of, but no official structure for these activities (gasp!). It will probably take me a few days to get my summer legs. After that I’ll be in full enjoyment mode.
