    I'm not a real teacher yet, I'm finishing up my undergrad in English and Secondary Ed right now. So this summer, I'm graduating! ... And then going right back in a week to start summer grad classes. But still!

    Thanks! We are planning to hit all those places, so I'm glad we are headed in the right direction with the trip planning! :)

    I think I'm going to spend my time revamping my lessons for the next school year. :D
    Well, I will also try camping. Can you suggest me good places to pitch a tent? I have only tried the Pine Grove Furnace in Penn but you cannot do overnight there.

    I'll do a very little bit of tutoring. Lots of reading, gardening, running 2-3 mikes per day. Looking forward to afternoons on my veranda with cool beverages, days on the beach with friends, baseball games, getaways with my sweet hubs.

    Both for me. But, I'd rather talk about the fun activities! :D

    - I'm planning on going to an amusement park in May to beat the crowd before all the kids get out for the summer.
    - Nice, relaxing days at the bookstore, browsing & going through magazines.
    - A day trip to San Diego...haven't been there in probably the last 3-5 yrs now.
    - Have a fun day out w/ a cousin.
    - Hopefully a fun day w/ a friend.
    - Wedding ring shopping around.
    - Going to the movies even more.
    - Trying some new restaurants opening in my area

    We will go on a couple of small family vacations. We have a high-maintenance 2 year old so we try to avoid any really long trips. Thus, we'll be going to a local state park for a few days with my family then spend a couple of nights at Great Wolf Lodge with the in-laws.

    Aside from that, my biggest objective will be to improve my UIL Science materials for next year. Last summer I compiled a relatively concise biology book by combining a couple of biology textbooks into one resource without a lot of the wordiness. This summer I plan to compile a chemistry book of a similar nature.

    It's my first summer that I won't be working at all since I became a teacher (or graduated HS actually).

    I plan on getting married, possibly traveling somewhere, and preparing for my foray into student-hood again in the Fall.

    Just starting to shop around. If I had gotten it, I would have probably mentioned in one of these threads.

    :(;)
    I don't follow that closely. Just wishing you well . My son is getting married in Sept. She's had her ring from day one and they just recently bought wedding rings. It's on my mind which is why I asked. Maybe you mentioned having the rings or not. Sorry if I was distracted and missed you not sharing.whether or.not you had engagement ring. It's not something I come here to keep track of, hence the question. I I hope you find rings you love

    Since when does, "shopping around" mean "I got it"? That doesn't even take any close following, as you say, to understand that.

    you said "wedding ring shopping". I thought maybe that indicated you had an engagement ring already. May be different by you...are you shopping for both? In any case, have fun shopping!

    I am going to go for a big long drive around North West. Time to get away from it all... also some backup tutoring for students trying to catch up for the new school year.
