It’s been a while since my update. If you don’t follow me on Twitter (and why don’t you?! I’m awesome on there. And I neglect this corner of the internet too easily), I am now officially no longer a grad school student. I am done! And I’m VERY excited to spend the summer doing next to nothing but enjoying Lex and Thalia. And have them drive me insane.
To keep myself from selling them to gypsies, I know I’m going to need to pack our 12 weeks of summer with stuff to do. It’s better for everyone that way. I have every week planned with activities and themed activities for certain weeks. Let no week go without stuff to do! I want to reinforce all they’ve learned at preschool over the school year so there will be some review of basic concepts. In addition to school review, I made bucket list of activities. I really dislike the term bucket list. No real reason. It just rubs me the wrong way. Same with the term “Honey Do-List” Ick.
Here’s our list of stuff. We will be busy and we WILL have fun. I feel a little like Clark Griswold when I insist on fun. But IT WILL BE HAD!
We’re also a little closer to becoming homeowners again. I don’t want to discuss it too much, because I’d hate to have it all fall through. I believe in jinxes. I also really hate packing.
I’m also crazy excited to dig right back into photography again. I haven’t shot anything worthwhile in nearly a month! That’s far too long. My poor neglected camera. I can feel my skills regressing. My last month of school (EVAH!) was designed to kill us, or at the very least make us whimper and beg for mercy. The degradation rituals of grad school were designed by Satan himself. I’m sure of it. But I kicked ass. It’s what I do.
