I can make it mine

Since my last "new home" post I've been busy decorating and still tying to make this new home mine. My heart starts to tingle a bit when I think of coming home now. I've decorated the long wall in my family room. I've also bought some new paint as the other paint I had was too bright and immature. I haven't painted yet but I'm looking forward to some time to do it in the coming weeks. I'll be off work for the summer in three weeks...three weeks!!!!!! Oh, my gosh. I'm going to miss my students tremendously. Especially the tenth graders I've had since last year. I teared up the other day when one of them mentioned that they won't get to see me every day anymore. :-(

What will I do with my time off??? Well, I'm going to spend lots of time with my little angel, Elise. Because she tends to have a rough start when she goes back after a long break, we will be working on school related stuff to keep her sharp for next year.  I also plan to start the query process for my book, Polly, The Praying Mantis: A Bug, Bat, & Human Eco-Adventure. I'm also going to have a yard sale, and really, really, organize this house and all it's little parts. I want to create a garden and grow things in my own dirt.
