Teachers {love} Summer!!

As much as I LOVE teaching, boy do I just LOVE summer! I'm excited to be linking up with Primarily Speaking to share some of my favorite reasons for loving summer!



These People!


I just love summer days with these cute littles of mine!  During the school year, my alarm goes off between 4:15am and 5:15am (depending if I workout or not), so needless to say when I get home and finally sit down I am exhausted. There are so many days during the year that I can't wait until 7:30pm and it's bedtime. I hate that. I really do. I feel like I'm just wishing their little lives away and trying to make it until the next bedtime so this busy teacher mama can get some sleep too. But, in the summer I get to make up for all those long days and really, truly enjoy my kids. 


Working Out.


I'm not a huge fan of working out, and during the school year it's really hard to fit in time to work out. But, during the summer I can actually sleep in to a decent time and still get a workout in. Yesterday, I was able to sleep in, workout, AND take a shower all before my baby woke up! 

On my early morning drive to school, I pass so many people running and I'm always SO jealous! I always wish that I didn't have to be at school so incredibly early (7:15!!!) and I could actually run in the morning before work. So, I've really enjoyed being able to run first thing in the morning! I love having that {me time} to clear my head! 


Play Dates and Pool Days!

How cute is she!? 


It's been so much fun being able to meet friends at the park, head to the pool, or take my littles on dates to Target! I've really enjoyed meeting some of my girlfriends and having some mommy time while our kids play! I'm really looking forward to next week and having some mommy time at the pool while Camden and Cora nap! It's been awhile since I've actually layed out a pool to get a tan! 


Shopping!

I'm a shopaholic! Shopping is definitely a hobby of mine. And, I've really, really, really enjoyed the extra time to actually look in a store and not have to rush! Last week I went shopping all. By. Myself. And, it was incredible! I got some fun things for my home office, some pretty dresses for the beach and some craft items for a couple DIY projects!


Extra Time!


Blogging and creating things for school and TPT have really become a huge hobby of mine! I've just loved all the extra time this summer to spend blogging and creating and updating things in my store! Since I'll be moving classrooms AND grade levels, I've got a mile long to-do list for school, and I've been able to really get a headstart on creating some things for my classroom. Also, thanks to the #TPTSellerChallenge I've been updating some of my products!!

Of course, there are TONS of more reasons why I love summer so much! I hope you are enjoying your summer, too! Make sure to head to Primarily Speaking and link-up with all the reasons you love summer!

  1. Chandra, your littles are absolutely darling! And, I can totally relate to those bedtime thoughts you shared. I feel the same way. I'm a total shopper too! Packages have been arriving daily on our doorstep, and I've taken a few "field trips" to the mall. Eek. Good for you for getting your sweat on! I hope you enjoy the rest of your wonderful summer. Thank you so much for linking up!

  3. Your children are adorable! I love hanging out with my husband and kids. Mine are older--11 and 6. We've got beach days, library visits, and mother/child dates planned! Have a restful and wonderful summer.
