Thankful for...

...summer freedom. Even though I still work, it's cut way back (only 14 students), and I spend almost no time with it each day. And despite the heat (especially this year), I'm still enjoying all the time with the kiddos. They're at such great ages, and I know it will only get better in so many ways.

The best part (for me) is getting to stay up late and sleep in the next morning. The kids are good at staying downstairs (where they sleep during the summer) until I get them up, and it allows me to just rest and not have to worry about a specific rising time. Of course, I struggle to sleep well most of the time, but it really helps to have that freedom. Last night, I think I finally got over 8 hours. I've been getting around 7-7 1/2, which isn't really enough. But just knowing that I can try for 8 every night is a great feeling. :)

Have a great second day of summer! :)
