I cannot reiterate how much I love my job. Summer school is always much more laid back than regular school and the kids are only there for 4 hours. Monday we hiked the redwoods, Tuesday we spent the day in my town at the Farmer's Market and the waterfront, and today we went to the small logging town just south of the high school and had a picnic at the river.
The weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. The kids spent about an hour skipping rocks into the river. It was lovely.
Then we headed back up the trail to eat lunch and kick a soccer ball around.
School was school. I am feeling really overwhelmed and having self doubt already! And I haven't even started the regular program. I am already questioning my ability to have my own classroom. I can make a pretty good aide, but will I make a good teacher??? Only time will tell.
I came home instead of going to the gym and threw on Fitness Blender's 1000 calorie workout. Today was the first day in a very long time that I had to actually convince myself to workout. I did and I felt way better afterward, even though I had to do several rounds of HIIT burpees.
They make me crazy! So do jumping jacks.
Dinner tonight was surprisingly good, considering I just scrounged around in the fridge because boyfriend is at work and the rest of the family is at a local baseball game.
