Christmas Break is now officially over. For me, anyway. YS still has a couple of days before he goes back, and OS & MS still have another week.
Luckily, today we have an Administration Day, which means the kids actually have an extra day off. It also means that it's almost like an extra day for the faculty: It's a laid-back kind of day. I like having this day to myself: being able to get myself geared back up for seeing those smiling little faces, and (more importantly) knowing what the heck we're going to do that first day. I detest starting the day without a plan. I think I do a much better job when I go in knowing just what I want to do that first day back. I'm definitely not a "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of girl.
It's not going to help that it's going to be cold today...only up to around 35 degrees, if it gets that warm. A Starbucks run is definitely in the plans, especially since I don't have to be at school until 8:00 (instead of the usual 7:30 when the kids are there).
So now we have the following to look forward to: Snow Days (please, please!), Spring Break (although it's technically still winter when we have break), and the end of the school year. It's all downhill from here!
