It began today at 3:45pm...10 consecutive days away from my home away from home (Mrs. DiCesare's First Grade Classroom). Yes, I am ready! Ready for what?
1. I am ready to do what I want to do with my time ( of course I will be fitting that in between the needs of my family but I 'll take what I get)
2. I am ready to watch movies with my kids ( I bought Hairspray and Mimzy for the 18 hr car ride to Ft. Myers Beach). I am sure I will re-watch the Harry Potter series as well as Eragon and maybe even a bit of Dora and Max and Ruby for my just 5, five year old.
3.I am ready to feel the sun blanket and soothe me to sleep as I relax on the recliner.
4.I am ready to eat out, experience the sun setting into the ocean and hang with my brother who practically lives on the beach (he works for Bonita Jet Ski and
5. I am ready to talk with Grandma DiCesare, listen to her memories, and give her a hug.
6. I am ready to have time to practice being a mom again, to share thoughts and dreams with my husband and just to exist away from the classroom. I will be nice not to feel like Mrs. DiCesare this week.
All of these things will help make it easier to return to room 114 . With this break, I know I will be ready to"spring" right back into the last months of first grade.
I'll check in later this week...if you are on spring break, ENJOY!
