the last day of school year 2011-2012, happy in the sad-kind-of-way, is now history. well done, it’s cooked. i have closed up the office completely, putting away everything from computers to band-aids, turned in my keys and walkie-talkie, said adios to my amigos and now i’m ready for the best part of my job: 82 days of sabbatical with which i can do Whatever I Want.
on this summer’s agenda: we’ll be driving to nyc via appalachia for emma’s kindergarten graduation 6/13; she’ll return with us for an exciting week before we all (jrs, too) drive down to walt disney world (the jose’s are flying) for a week. by the time we return, it will be darn near the fourth of july, so i’m headed back to the track. i’m going to have a relief-nurse for the track this year and won’t be so tied down by it; with no church-job either, we’re going to take some shorter trips, still unscheduled.
otherwise, i’m Free—Free to be you and Me.
