Home from church and it is just a nice relaxing day!  I have had the whole past week off from school.  It has been so very nice to sleep in and not have to be anywhere!  Sleeping in for me is 7:00 though...I just can't sleep in for very long.

Tomorrow we start our summer school!  How can that be? Where did my time off go? I have ideas in my head for summer school, but not one thing written down yet.  I have got to get with it!  Time is running out.  I am working with in-coming kinders through 3rd graders in literacy. For the younger students, we will start out working with a Mo Willems Pigeon unit and I Spy unit (creating our own pictures and writing the clues to make an I Spy book) with the older ones.  We are going to have FUN!!

I need to finalize our summer vacation plans.  We are going to go to the Colorado Springs area.  Have you been there?  What do you recommend? I want to see Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge, and go river rafting.  

Have a wonderful Sunday and don't forget to link up with Farley!

    1. Sarah, The Fault in Our Stars has been very popular! I don't think I can read that one though- too sad.

  4. Happy Summer! You and I have the same idea when it comes to sleeping in. My teen thinks I'm nuts.

    1. Mary, it just never seems that I can sleep in for too long. And there is too much to do to stay in bed that long! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. We can't wait to get to Royal Gorge. Won't be able to do much there since they are still rebuilding from the fire last year though.

    1. I agree, Susanna, it would have been nice to have a bit more time off before summer school began!

  8. I've been to Colorado Springs but I was inside at a Love & Logic conference all week. I bet you'll have a great time though.
