Summer lovin'

Way back in December, my fiance attended my staff Christmas party with me, and got to select a prize while there. Her prize was to choose a day in March to take off at 1:00.

Since her school would hardly honor this prize, it fell to me, and I happily took that day today.

Leaving 2 hours early -- really more like 3 or 4, since I rarely leave before 4:30 -- felt like playing hooky, and I liked it! Driving home with the radio blaring and the window open -- which it had to be, because my A/C is currently not working -- stopping at Lowes to pick up some mulch and flowers for my house. THIS is the life!!

Putting my house on the market next week, so I was able to get a bit of work done outside today in daylight hours. Here's hoping it sells fast!

My principal gives out leave early passes a couple times a year for different things.

I love them. They have the benefits of a mental health day, without the drawbacks of leaving your kids for a day.

I love the idea of a leave early pass! My principal hands out jeans passes from time to time. Maybe I should suggest this instead! Who watches your class when you leave at 1:00?

Excellent point about those 2 hours actually turning into 4 hours!

Summer's coming fast, isn't it? I hope!

Yes, the leaving early part is nice -- when there is coverage for my class. When they say, Hey you can leave at 1, but you need to split your class up among the other 3rd grade teachers, then I balk, because that's a major inconvenience for the other teachers...

Oh, and when there IS coverage, it's a TA...
