    With summer vacation coming soon (I can't wait to get rid of this class!) :D I was wondering what everyone was planning on doing this summer! I know I will be hanging out at home since I will be graduating next weekend with my Master's degree, since I will not have classes to go to!! HURRAY!:p

    I will be sipping iced tea at the beach while my 6 yo daughters play. I'll be enjoying Summer Vacation for the first time since I was a student. I'll be hanging out with my new co-worker who also wants to set up her room over the summer. I'll be eagerly waiting for august so I can be a real teacher :) :) :)

    I'll be spending lots of time driving my daughter, who plays competitive soccer, to games throughout Southern Ontario. In between, I'll be taking an on-line course to gain certification to teach grade 7-10 (now I'm qualified JK-6) and taking a few 1-3 day workshops offered by our teachers' federation. Add in some re-decorating and getting my son ready to go off to university in September and I'll be pretty busy!

    I'll be sitting back reading a book, sipping a tall cool drink. I'll be spending time on my boat and at my cottage. This summer will not be about school.

    I am going home to visit our families... This will probably be my dh's last summer off (he is a student), so I plan to enjoy it! Hopefully we can take a few small trips, and also just relax :)

    I am teaching summer school if enough kids enroll (if not - then that's fine with me!) I'm taking one online class for my masters. In July I'm going to relax and read, go to CA and hang out at the beach for a week, and plan for next year!

    I will be working my part time job. I'll also be working on organizing a year-long plan for English instruction and a basic skeleton of plans for science. I'm going up to SD with some friends for a week and then down to southern IL for my grandparent 60th anniversary.

    I'll be tutoring three kiddos and hopefully taking two classes for my masters. I'm also looking forward to actually cleaning out my room! I got hired a few weeks before school and I never really got to throw away the junk left by the other teache.

    I might teach summer school, and I'm going to Myrtle Beach! YAY! I also be doing a few 5ks...

    I'm taking the AQ course through Nipissing University in Ontario. I've done most of my recent AQ courses through them, although this will be the first on-line (others have been print correspondance). I liked that they don'l mandate specific on-line hours or participation in live discussions like some do.

    I'm hoping to find a part time job this summer and I'm heading to Las Vegas in August! (I know, I'm insane to go there in August, but it's the only time the whole fam can get together!) Other than that, I'll be taking day trips around NH and MA.

    I plan on napping as often as possible. I love being able to just crash whenever I feel like it.

    In June, I plan on going hiking a few times in the north Georgia mountains. I also plan on painting my living room now that the dining room is done. In July, we're going to Ecuador for 2.5 weeks. Then, I guess, it's time to come back home and prepare for another year. :p

    I'm going on a cruise in June and then several long weekends in July. Tutoring two kids a few times a week, maybe painting out guest bedroom, and then tending my plants. My hope is to grow a beautiful and bountiful garden in containers. We shall see how that goes. Besides that I will be sitting at home reading, painting or going for long walks. I am soooooo ready. 6 more weeks...
