Y’all – we’ve made it to May. Can you believe it? I know it’s a bit trite to say, but I feel like it was only yesterday that I was ringing in the new year with my sister and her family, and now we’ve almost hit the halfway point of 2012. My mind is officially blown.
I don’t always love feeling like the time is slipping through my fingers, but I have to say that right now I’m thrilled at how quickly time is passing by – after all, the beginning of May means we only have one month left before school is out! In fact, I’m pretty sure I only have 27 days of school left as of today…not that I’m counting or anything.
This past weekend Corey and I headed up to Dallas to visit his family and to go see a Ranger’s game. I’m not the biggest baseball fan ever (read: I completely and totally hate baseball and will never understand how people can find it interesting) but I had a good time and the trip made me long for the relaxing, hot, and absolutely amazing days of summer. It’s so close I can taste it!
On our way back from the baseball game, we had to drive past one of my favorite places in the entire world, Six Flags, and I told Corey that it was practically torture to have me that close to a roller coaster and not allow me to run in and ride it twenty times in a row. I need a nice day at an amusement park where I can just pretend like I’m a kid and don’t have any responsibilities like a job, a mortgage, or a car that’s falling apart.
It feels silly to be so anxious for summer to come – after all, I know that I’m lucky to even have a break. Most people don’t. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t even more excited about summer than my students are. It can’t get here fast enough!
Do you love summer as much as I do? I think I’d be in love with it even if I didn’t get a two-and-a-half month break…there’s just something about it that makes my soul happy!
