Happy Tuesday. Stephanie has the best idea, to do a Day in the Life post each season. I love reading these posts and thought I would share our Monday with you. I try really hard to wake up at the same time each morning (during the week) and go to bed at the same time as the school year. I have found this to really help me when school starts back up…my first summer it was ROUGH to get back into school after staying up until midnight and sleeping in. My kids had spent the night at my parents house so I had a quiet morning to myself on this day. Here we go…
I went for a walk at 6:30 this particular morning. Usually I go before Brandon leaves or when he is home in the afternoons…or I just go on our treadmill. It was beautiful outside. We have had problems with smoke lately (wildfires in Canada and surrounding areas). I was so grateful it was clear enough to go for a walk outside.
Not a bad way to start the morning with this many steps, I really feel like getting my workout in during the morning sets me up for success for the rest of the day. I will miss these morning walks during the school year.
As I was walking in the door from my walk Brandon called and told me that I needed to jump in my car right away and take it to a window repair shop (I had a rock hit my window the night before and crack it). The repair shop was able to get me in right away so I took off.
I also signed Guy up for Flag Football this fall.
And then I went and spent a couple of hours in my classroom. I am not officially done setting everything up and will probably stop in every now and again to keep adding finishing touches to my room. Any other teachers feel like they are never 100% ready?!?!
At 1:00 the kids turned on the TV and watched Bunked while I did a little professional development and had a homemade iced coffee.
Dinner was leftover chinese food (from date night).
And then it cooled off enough to play outside. Maddi made a “kite” out of a balloon.
We spent the rest of the evening playing cars and watching The Brady Bunch.
When I went to bed I felt pretty accomplished with my steps and activity for the day….
And I ended the day by working on this blog post and watching Friends in bed.
It is fun to think that my next Day in the Life post will be during the fall (if it can’t be summer year round, at least I have fall to look forward to). I hope you had a great Monday.
