At this point, I feel the need to take an inventory of my mental "To Do List" and well...I better get cracking. The trouble is my original list has been expanded. I should know better by now. These lists are always wishful thinking.

Well, as you can see, I have accomplished a few things. However, it's not near my expectations. In fact, some of these items have been on my list since last summer. There is a delicate balance we teachers have in the summers. It's our time to give our families the extra love and attention that has been snagged from them all year long. However, in our heads is a running checklist of all the "things" we want to complete before the next school year. I have five weeks left. Yikes!
