3 Summer Memories, 2 Favorites about Back to School, and 1 Career

I'm joining up today with 4321's linky party.  I love the idea of a 3, 2, 1 - I do it with my school kids all the time.  So here it goes...

3...2...1 Linky Party!

3 Favorite Summer Memories 

2 Favorite Things about Back to School

1 Career you would like to try if you weren't a teacher

So... here's my information:

3 Favorite Summer Memories

*I loved going to Pismo Beach and Monterey with my family.  There is just something about getting away from the house and being able to completely relax.  Not that I didn't love my time at the house, but there was always something to do - some kind of project to tackle.  

*I also enjoyed having no rigid schedules to have to stick to.  My youngest son still had his teachers that came to visit (Physical Therapy, Speech, and a Cognitive Teacher), but this summer we didn't try to pack the days and weeks with so many different activities that we were wiped out.  Last summer we had so many day trips and topped it with different Parks and Rec. department activities for the boys that it was like we didn't have a choice anymore - not this summer. 

*Another favorite summer memory is looking back 15 pounds ago.  It's been a lot of hard work but I'm so thankful for the summer to be able to concentrate on eating right, sleeping enough, not stressing, and being able to enjoy exercise.  I just hope to keep the habits going into the school year.  

2 Favorite Things about Back to School

*I love setting up my classroom.  I love buying school supplies, decorating, and reorganizing.  I love that I had all summer to create what I wanted to create and had the time to do so.  I love going into Back to School with my to do list being a manageable size.  

*I also love preparing for a new set of kids, and that I have an opportunity to do the same favorite lessons from the year before. That I can keep learning and growing as a teacher to learn different ways to teach the difficult to grasp lessons.  I love the chance to be able to keep doing what I love.

1 Career I would try if I wasn't a teacher...

If I wasn't a teacher I have always thought I would love to be a school librarian, or a librarian at the public library.  I have to be around books, to help a child develop their passion for reading.  But I never really ever thought I would be something other then a teacher - ever since I was in preschool, being a teacher is really the only thing that I ever thought I would be when I grew up. 

It's Saturday and I made it through the first week of school!  It's time to celebrate!  Go link up too and let me learn about your 3, 2, 1's! 


  1. Thanks for linking up. Congrats on the 15 pounds. I am joining that journey starting today.

    First week is always so tiring. Good luck this school year. :)

    1. From one Emily to another, congrats on surviving the first week of school! I used to work at the public library when I was in high school. It was awesome! Enjoy week 2 of your school year!
