Friday Five – Five Things I’m Looking Forward to This Summer

I’ve been counting down to this day since I returned to work from maternity leave: its the last day of the school year!  I’ll be spending the morning finishing up cleaning up my classroom, followed by a faculty/lunch meeting, and then by mid-afternoon I’ll officially be on summer break.  I always look forward to summer break, but I’ve been especially excited about this summer for a number of reasons.

1.  I can’t wait to spend more time with little man.  Time is just flying by, and I can’t believe that he turned six months old yesterday.  While I’m out of school for the summer, little man will also be taking a break from daycare.  I cannot wait to spend the next couple of months with him.

I cannot believe how quickly little man is growing!

2.  On Sunday, we’ll be taking little man to his first baseball game.  Preston and I are both huge baseball fans, and we’re excited to introduce little man to the world of baseball by taking him to an Orioles game at Camden Yards in Baltimore.

3.  We’ll be spending most of the month of July with my mom.  Little man and I will be spending a week in Illinois at my parents’ house, and then my mom will be flying back with us to help take care of little man while I’m working on a three week long curriculum project for my school district.

4.  At the end of July, Preston and I will be celebrating our five year wedding anniversary.  I can’t believe that its already been five years since we said “I do.”

5.  We can’t wait to take little man on his first trip to Disney World.  We’ll be spending a week in August at Disney with Preston’s side of the family.  Its going to be quite the adventure with 11 of us at Disney, including two babies.

QOTD: What are you looking forward to about this summer?

  1. Awww look at him!!! I mean just too cute!!

    Yeah summer vacation! I was a special ed teacher in a non public school-11 months and never got the summers off….I totally envied teachers who had summer off.

    Enjoy every minute with the little one and your family this summer.

    It sounds like you have a lovely summer planned. I’m sure you will enjoy all that extra time with your little boy and with your mom. How nice that she can come help take care of your son while you are working on the special project.

  3. Such an awesome summer you have going on! I’m looking forward to marathon training (I think 🙂 ), spending weekends out of the city, eating ice cream, and wedding planning.

    Sounds like a great summer. Good luck at Disney in August and I hope Little Man has fun. He already seems to love Mickey.
