Summer Plans!

I am done with my long-term sub position! I have a job at the school in the fall! I am close to finalizing my plans for our new sitter for Isis in the fall! I am home with Isis until sometime in July when I will start setting up my classroom! Free time, here I come!!

For the next few weeks until July, I've got plans! I had great plans to keep up with my blogging when I went back to work, but that really kinda fell through. I've decided I need to just take it easy on myself. I absolutely love blogging and I love reading blogs and keeping in touch with my blog friends. BUT, I also love teaching and I need to focus on that right now so that I can be the best teacher I can for my students. As I've said before, they deserve my absolute best. Isis also obviously deserves my absolute best & between being a mom, wife, teacher & blogger, blogging just took second stage and I think that's okay. I still make appearances - at least once every 2 weeks so I can keep my BlogHer ads up! But really I'm doing this for myself and I will post as I have time and motivation.

So my list for the summer! 

I want to organize my iTunes. I know that sounds daunting, but I've been wanting to do it for a while!

I want to read several books - I've got a list coming of my summer reading!

I want to actually go to the pool! I bought two bathing suits this year - both look like this, yes I bought tankinis - and I got Isis some great pool gear & I plan on just having some fun with that since I haven't even worn a bathing suit in at least 3 years & I owe it to Isis to get some pool time!!

I want to plan out & set up my classroom for when school starts in August! I have some great ideas that I'll probably share later & get some mom (& teacher) feedback!

I want to go to the Farmer's Market - fairly regularly. We are doing the CSA again - posts for that will start around June 3 - but I want to supplement with Farmer's Market foods! My big goal for the summer is to prepare fresh food at our house as much as possible. That means Isis & I will be making some frequent trips to the Farmer's Market & grocery stores!

Work Out!!! I really really need to work out regularly! Any moms have any great at-home workout tips or videos that you like?

Blog! I really do want to keep up with my blog again. I love using this to connect and to just document somewhere the crazy and awesome things that are going on with Isis. I would love for her to be able to go back one day & read & see everything she was doing at this point in her life! A digital scrapbook, of a sort!

Sell my house!!!! I am just praying regularly that we are able to sell our house this summer. I know it's a difficult time to sell & lots of people are praying for the same thing, but I am definitely someone who is looking to buy another house & help someone out with that as soon as ours sells!!

And finally, I would LOVE to take Isis to the zoo &/or the aquarium!
Who knows if I'll actually be able to do all these things, but I'm hoping I will!!

Enjoy your summer- You and Isis deserve a nice, relaxing break! I hope the sitter thing works out so soon.... and selling your house, setting up your classroom, and taking trips to the zoo, pool, etc! But God has been so faithful in his timing of student teaching, long term subbing, and job opportunities. He will be faithful again... Thank goodness for His perfect plans for our life!

When it comes to working out, I gotta use the Wii fit. Do you have a Wii? It's great. Charlotte just sits there and watches me in her exersaucer. Ha! Have an awesome summer, Cameron! You deserve it after all your hard teaching work.

Oh, I was just trying to make a dent in my reader with all the posts I've starred to comment on and never made it... when I came across this one! :) A little old but......

You have great summer plans. The kids are at a really fun age to visit the zoo/aquarium. I hope you'll be able to make it! I was able to get a membership at our aquarium for $29 (for a year) so have taken Levi a few times. It's a fairly small-ish one, but totally worth the $$ and he LOVES it. Such a good rainy day (or scorching hot day) retreat from bad weather to get us out of the house!!!

Also, I love this photo of Isis. What a winner. SO. CUTE.
