Wish I was there . .
My passport is ready and I can be packed in minutes.

Not much happening

The finals are corrected and the grades are in. Tuesday is officially the last day and I have survived the last year of teaching. I received some lovely notes from students about how much they enjoyed my class, as well as a number of students who stopped in to wish me a good summer. I've not quite forgotten the crazy parents and unsupportive administration, but the second half of the year was a definite improvement.

I appear to have picked up some crud and will be calling the doctor on Tuesday as it has been ten days and I still can't shake it. I am sleeping as though I have mono - napping every chance I get.

We are taking it easy this weekend. PH actually took a parent free day yesterday and sat by the beach solo. As I will be leaving next Saturday for four days in Oregon, it was easy to be gracious about his day. Other than a cooking class on Sunday next weekend, I have NO PLANS in Oregon! I can not wait as most days are packed with children needing various levels of attention. I am so excited to be without plans. After that trip I will be home for a couple weeks and then it is off to Norway and Maine. This summer will be full of fun travel and family!

Hope everyone in the U.S. is having a safe Memorial Weekend!

A cooking class sounds interesting. I would love to be able to cook for fun, instead of just trying to get a meal on the table twice a day.

I bet it feels absolutely incredible to be done with school for the year! And you can extra time for yourself, even if you are traveling...

Sounds like a fun time. We won't be in Oregon until June.

ET - enjoy your planning. You're right I am lucky to have this time to travel and hang out with the kids.
