Summertime is Wondertime :D

Anyways, I am back at it, and am already back down the 8 of the 20 lbs. I've put back on in the last month and a half. Slow and steady ya'll, slow and steady.

Glacier, Alaska, Blue, Ice, Fjord, Nature, WaterI have never been so glad to have the summer off! After having a really rough year, the summer has been a roller coaster. I just got back from my Alaskan Cruise with my mom, and it was really amazing. I learned so much, and finally got to LEAVE the good ol' USA. During the trip though, we got some devastating news--my father-in law passed away. Suddenly, all I could think about was getting home.

Remember those previous posts about doing better, and getting healthy? Well--is it bad that I haven't totally fell off the wagon, but I haven't progressed any? Do you ever say, "This summer I'm going to work out, and lose all this testing weight?" Yea, me too. I had done really well and had lost 15 lbs. Then the BBQs started. If you are from the South, you know that when you go to someone's BBQ you have to try a little of everything they put out, and you go back for 2nds. :)

Bbq, Cook, Fire, Eat, Burgers, FlamesOther than those setbacks, this summer has been way more relaxing than the previous two summers. Even though we are getting a new principal, I am getting a new team, and everything around me seems to be changing. I feel at peace. I feel ready for a new year.

Now to pick a theme for this year...

I have done color themes, and I think I will stick with that. I would love to do Harry Potter, but I think I would spend a large fortune--money that I don't have--to make it look like a RCA classroom. The kids would love it, but my wallet wouldn't. I'm thinking more of a homey feeling. I wonder if I could get someone to come in and paint my classroom. My neighbor got hers painted last year, and it was the most beautiful shade of light blue.
