And So It Begins...

Ah, summer break...

Working in a school has its advantages.

First and foremost, of course, is making a daily difference in children's lives...make no doubt about it, I love what I do, and cherish every day that I'm there.

That being said, breaks are good.

I love the fact that I'm off when my kids are.  I don't have to worry about finding somewhere for them to be, and I get to spend my days with them.

Plus, there aren't many jobs where you get two weeks off every Christmas, a week off during spring, and let's not forget the grand-daddy of them all, the one that kids and teachers look forward to with a holy reverance, Summer Break.

I don't like summer, in and of itself.  I don't like heat, and the oppressive humidity that comes with living in the Ohio valley (being a mile away from the river doesn't help much in that respect) often makes me lose the will to live while on my way to the mailbox.

Which is attached to the house.

Right by the door.

That being said, there are lots of good reasons to go outside during the summer, such as the things you can find just in your backyard:

Is this a boy ladybug, or a girl---so confusing...
Or those wonderful trips to the zoo:

Whee!!!!  I'm swimming!
See ya, Landlubber!!!

I'm looking forward to summer this year, heat or not, and I'll be sure to show up here at my poor, neglected blog, as well as Second Star to the Right, more often, since I'll have much more time over the next couple of months.

I hope you'll check back in with me; big things are in store for this year, and it all starts here.

Thanks for reading my ranting,
