OMG it's AUGUST: A pro-con list

Monday, August 4, 2014

August is always so bittersweet for me. While most people probably think of years in calendar years, I tend to think more in school years, and so it's always an interesting transition between the end of summer and the beginning of the next school year. This will be my tenth year of teaching (eek!), and I know it's going to be wonderful, but it's always a little sad to see summer go. 

And thus, today, a pro-con list. I figured what better way to express my internal battle than to share it with all of you? 

Cons of August: 
-It's back to school :(
-Sleeping in and midday naps are about to be distant memories
-Running the A/C more often

Pros of August: 
-It's back to school!!! :)
-Meeting my awesome new students
-Fall is just around the corner 
-The Salted Caramel Mocha is so close to coming back at Starbucks
-All things apple and pumpkin related are on the way
-It's still awesome summer weather for flip flops, sundresses, and tank tops
-College football is oh-so-close!

Way more pros than cons, which I'm happy to see! Now that we're down to two more weeks of summer, I've started thinking about all the things I want to do before we're officially back to school. And I've come up with a list that I think will make these last two weeks super enjoyable! 

-Have a pool/beach day
-Go mini golfing
-Eat Ritters frozen custard
-Spend an entire day with my husband without us having any set plans
-Set up my classroom (!)
-Have an awesome BBQ at home
-Find the perfect First Day of School outfit! 

What's left on your summer to-do list?
