Summertime, and the livin' is, well, easier

Today is the official start of my summer because it's the first Monday that I didn't have to get up at 5:30, get Amigo on his bus, and head to my own classroom to work at my desk and get ready for the day. We had commitments today, mainly to get Amigo started in his virtual summer school class, but it was still easier and lighter than a typical school day for both of us. We got up an hour later than usual, had breakfast as usual, and then headed off to his "First Day of Class" orientation meeting with the teacher. He won't see the teacher in person until his final exam. All of the work will be done at home and submitted online.
Now that we're home, I'm looking at my to-do list. I've divided this into two main categories: long term to-do and short-term to-do. Long-term includes items like "Prepare for Rummage Sale in July" and "Work on landscaping in front of house." Short-term is more like "Fill out and send in Lion's Camp paperwork" and "Call Red Cross to schedule CPR class" and "Pick up new curriculum manuals at school office." Of course, there are a lot more items on each list.
But the first thing on my to-do list for today is already on the "ta-da!" list: Amigo's virtual school orientation.
Now I plan to add a little mental health break to the list. Cappuccino, watch a little CNN, maybe pick up a new book to read. That is, a book to read for pleasure.
Ah, summertime, and the livin' is easy.

Today was our first day of summer as well. I think I have more time to read when the boys are at school though. I hope you find a good book to read!

I think I'm jealous -- we're not out until Friday, and I'm teaching summer school after a week off.

Thanks for the encouragement about the IEP. :-)
