Schooool's out for summer!

**Disclaimer:  I started this post at the beginning of the summer and forgot to post it!  This is part of my effort to slowly bring back our blog...bear with me.

Sooo, things have been a little crazy around here.  Hence the zero blog posts I wrote from April until now.  But I am happy to say that now that school is out, I have a lot more free time.  Yay!  It was so exciting to have a relaxing Monday morning on the couch, sipping my coffee, and watching the Today show.  While it was sad to say goodbye to some of my sweet kids, I am really glad to have some down time.

Here's a picture from the last week of school.  I've done this shaving cream activity back when I taught 1st and 2nd grade, and it definitely did not disappoint my Pre-K'ers.  They LOVED it.  My assistant and I were laughing at how we couldn't believe how much joy could come from a $1.50 can of shaving cream.  It was so fun to watch them.

So...what are we up to this summer?  Curt will be taking a few classes and I will still be working part-time for our church and coordinating Vacation Bible School for the church in August.  Despite some extra responsibilities at church, I'm still looking forward to getting some rest, enjoying the amazing New England summer weather, and hanging out with friends.  We will also be going home for a few weeks in July.  Can't wait!!

Recently I talked to a dear friend of mine (also a teacher) and she told me her two goals for the summer:  1) get in shape and 2) pay her bills.  Now, I'm sure she'll accomplish a lot more than those two things this summer (because she's awesome), but it got me's good to have goals.

Sooo what are my goals for the summer?  Good question!  Here are a few that I've come up with:
1)  read my Bible more
2)  read more books in general
3)  hang out with my husband and take advantage of our flexible summer schedules
4)  not stress out about VBS and trust that God will work through me and the volunteers
5)  go on walks with friends

That's all I can think of for now.... What are your goals for the summer??
