But First....

My summer mind is fighting for survival and before I can let the school mind take over completely there are a few things that need to be accomplished...

I need to
Watch more sunsets
Swing more golf clubs
Drink more Sangria

I want to
Ride the roller coaster
Swim in the lake
Play with the grandkids.

I know I should
Plan a few lessons.
Read professional books,
Ready my classroom.


I will
Take sunset boat cruises,
Visit with dear friends,
Enjoy the rest of the summer!


  1. Keep your list posted to remind you!!! School is important, but as in your poem, it only takes up one fourth of the poem...don't let it consume the rest of the summer! Enjoy, there's plenty of time.

  2. Love this and I like the idea of posting it to remind you how to spend these last few days/weeks of summer. I'm going to create a need/want/will do list too!

  3. Yes, yes, yes! So often during the school year I remind myself of all the joyous things I'm going to do in the summer time. Summers are short. Enjoy to the last drop.

  4. I remember how excited you were to get to the lake. Enjoy all the time you have before that school stuff does take over. Nice to put it all in a poem list, and a great idea to post nearby for all the days you are weary.
