Summa Summa Summatime...

It may be early, but with the beautiful weather in NJ this past weekend I can't resist. I know, I know, you think I'm going to write about how great it is to be a teacher when the summer rolls around. Well, these days school is not ending until the last day in June and unfortunately my preschool runs all summer so I, like most of you working girls, will be working 9-6 all year long (and unlike Ad Working Girl's fiance and his teacher friends)!

So as I sit with my coworkers writing this post during my lunch hour (so much for prepping for class tomorrow!) we are thinking of things to do while we are bored this summer, here are some of our own ideas as well as the internet's! Enjoy!

*Make a scrapbook (from a trip, from the summer, of your closest friends, anything!)

*Have a picnic with that special someone

*Handwrite and mail a letter to someone

*Go to a baseball game (local or professional!)

*Make dinner for your family

*See fireworks

*Keep a journal

*Make a new kind of sandwich (and name it after yourself)

*Start a website about one of your passions

*Go to the zoo

*Have a winter themed party

*Help someone young set up their first lemonade stand

*Have game night

*Go to an outdoor concert

*Fly a kite in the park or at the beach

*Attend a first aid class (trust me, it's worth the cheesy videos and painfully long lectures)

*Go without TV for a day (or as many days as you can handle!)

*Make homemade ice cream

*Learn how to sew

*Rearrange your room

*Take a midnight swim

I know it's a long list, but there are some things on there that I'm sure you've never done before. Feel free to add on to this list with some of your ideas!

I can't wait for summer. I'm definitely going to go to the zoo in NJ this summer & keep a journal. Maybe if I go to the beach I'll try to fly a kite. That would be nice!

Re-decorate! whenever I have nothing to do, I re-decorate. I have this whole wall which I've filling with pictures collected from magazines. It's so addicting once you get started!
