Weekly Wisdom + Summer Check-In

by - July 09, 2023

It feels like forever since I posted a Weekly Wisdom life update. The last one was all the way back in May, but in my defense, this summer has been unlike any other of my adult life. For the first time in more than a decade, I've truly had a summer break. Not just a week, but months. I honestly have not known what to do with myself.

I was talking with my mom about how I've never had this much time off at one time. I'm sure this will change as the years go by (at least I hope it does), but it's been very difficult for me to not work in some way. It's all I've ever known, and it feels weird to spend my weekdays not doing something productive.

My summer ends tomorrow. I have two weeks of training for my non-traditional teacher certification course then immediately start pre-planning. I take my content tests the following week which is also the first week of school.

So what has summer looked like so far?

-Learning a new curriculum and planning my first unit.
-Studying for my content test. It's been 15 years or so since I took a test!
-Homework for the course I'm starting next week.
-Lots and lots of reading! My June reading roundup is going to be packed with titles.
-A pool party for one of Alexis's besties.
-A few trips to the lake. Last week we were camping, hence no posts.
-A visit to Water World, our local water park.
-A bunch of trips to the hardware store (Chris has been putting in the floor of his building).
-Lots and lots of rain. Seriously.

I really haven't taken a lot of photos this summer, but here are the few that I have (If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you've already seen them).








I hope you're enjoying your summer!
