Today was my last official day of work until September. This, of course, is one of the biggest perks to teaching at a community college. We aren't required to do any work related activities for the entire summer. It's time for me to slip into full-time mommy mode, which is always a bit of an adjustment, even after so many years. Still, though, I think that this flexibility and extended time off would work for anyone, but especially for someone with young kids. Perhaps someday I will pick up a class or two to teach over the summer, but that likely won't happen until Imp is old enough to want to do his own thing in the summer.
For now, I'll count my blessings that my kids are still young enough to want to be around me in the summer and chill out.
