20 Days

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

This summer seems to be going by slowly, but as I sit and look at the calendar I only have 20 days until I go back to work.  Now I'm asking, where has this summer gone?  Crazy!!

Most of this summer has been spent nursing my husband, who fell over 8 feet from a ladder while cleaning out the gutters in our backyard.  He landed on his back and shattered his L1 vertebrae.  After being rushed into emergency surgery to remove the bone fragments from his spinal cord, he spent 5 days in the hospital and is now home recovering.  He has a long road ahead of him, but thankfully he is strong and in great health.  He will be out of work for 6 weeks to 3 months, but he's hoping for it to only be 6 weeks.  So, as you can imagine, we've been busy!!

I'm so excited about seeing my class list and getting to meet my kiddos on August 22nd.  I always love the first day of school.  I wonder if the students realize that the teacher can be just as nervous as they are?  I have always been blessed with amazing students and I'm sure this year will be no different. 

Enjoy what is left of your summer!!!

Semper Fi

You all know that I am a Marine Corps wife and today I just found this video by Trace Adkins.  How have I not seen or heard this song before?  Anyway, it was so touching I had to share on this blog.  It has absolutely nothing to do with school, except that my amazing students are the dependents of USMC and Navy service members.  For my Marine Corps parents, this is for you!!
