Last updated summer list

Today I started my 17th year of teaching. Students will start on Wed. Today was professional development about mental health and emergency situations. (Kind of a sober 1st day.) I would love to spend some time catching up but I'm exhausted and want to read for a few minutes before going to bed. So, here's my updated summer list. I did WAY less things than I had hoped, BUT it was still a nice summer and I really enjoyed the time spent at home with my kids. It was very hot and humid here this summer (and I intensely dislike heat), so we spent a lot of time inside.
