Is Summer Really Over?!

Alright, confession time guys.

I'm really not feeling the coming school year thing.  Usually by this time of the year I am so psyched that my head is about to explode, and I am chomping at the bit to dive in.  But this year...

Truth be told, I haven't even written up my lesson plan yet.  For tomorrow.

I did the research.  I investigated lessons.  Paid the fee to join the co-op.  Even ordered our new science text, and a Grow-A-Frog kit (it is totally a thing).  But I am just not feeling it.

Moving into middle school feels so much more serious, or at least the pressure is on for it to be.  Pardon me while I question authority, and figure out where we stand.  I can't help thinking that it is a notable disservice to suck all of the fun out of learning.  But I think our approach has always been a little oddball.

I think this weekend will be time to hit the books, sort some things out, and try to get myself ready to roll into this school year with a little more pizazz.  I'm really looking forward to having Cynar home for the holiday, and just relaxing and soaking in the end of summer.

I hope everyone has a great last weekend of summer!
