While we are 4 days into 2015, my New Year really doesn't begin until about 8:20 tomorrow morning when I welcome my 3rd graders back to school. While many parents are jumping for joy I go from being a mom of 2 back to teacher of 24. It's a good thing I LOVE my job.
Vacation has been PERFECT! We are very lucky that Dave is off between Christmas and New Years so the whole family is on vacation together. It's been relaxing with lazy days of sleeping in, staying in pj's, and following our noses. We saw more movies in the last two weeks than all year. My reviews? Two thumbs up for Annie and Mockingjay. Into the Woods? Not my cup of tea. We've went bowling, ice skating, shopping, played games, and just enjoyed being together. I always like rediscovering how much I love my family!
Now it's back to the grind. The house is as good as it's going to get (with Christmas decorations still on display), lunches are made for the week, dinner for the next two days are planned and the slow cooker for Tuesday all ready, lessons planned, backpacks cleaned out...I'm feeling pretty ready.
