Just in case you’ve been thinking I’m MIA, I’m actually BTS (Back to School)!

It’s been a couple of hectic weeks getting ready for our students and I don’t believe there’s any place hotter than our older elementary schools these hot, humid days as the schools  lack AC and air circulation in general.  As I move things from storage, set up rooms, and slave over the hot copier, I feel like I’m in a sauna and I’m missing my summer days at the pool!

The hardest thing has probably been to transition from pretty much living in a bathingsuit and barefeet to clothes that actually, kind-of look decent, and to wearing shoes on my feet, albeit sandals!

But, there is something else . . . the most important thing on my mind lately is something that I can’t blog about . . . not yet anyway, but soon . . . so stay tuned and enjoy the end of your summer, wherever you are!!!

It’s Friday again, so that means it’s time for . . .

My “Aloha Friday” question this week is: 



As a kid, it meant summer was over for me.  Later, as a mother, it meant saying good-bye to summer fun and getting my kids equipped for a new, exciting, school year.  Now, as a teacher, my summer has pretty much been over for a couple of weeks as I’ve been in school, planning for the new school year.  As much as I love summer, I also love the deliciousness of a new school year, with new beginnings for all . . .
