It’s official, school is over for the school year…well, at least for Princess. The twins are back up and running for the summer semester.
Princess ended her semester not only with a full load of high school classes completed, but also two college classes. And her lowest final grade…96! She took 150% of the credits of most high school students and aced them all!
But she did have some setbacks here at the end, not tied to her grades. And frankly we are both relieved that the stress and schedule of the school year is over. I am so glad that I decided we needed a Staycation to celebrate.
Here’s our plan…
- Booked a hotel with a pool using points for two nights.
- Went to the library and checked out a large stack of books (Princess and I both have a large stack.)
- Packed pjs and swimsuits.
- Packed some snacks and sandwich makings.
And we are off. Leaving the twins home because they have work and school. Sea Cadet is dropping us off at the hotel and then picking us up in two days…
I am over the top excited about this down time, some quality reading time and some one on one quality time with my girl. She’s got some big decisions to make for next year, and while there is no rush at this point, I do want to be available to talk things over as she rolls them around in her head.
So I’m signing off work, my daily life and my hustle for a couple of days to recoup and spend some quality and free time with my girl. I’m sure I will return with a variety of new creative ideas for work and renewed energy to take on the slower summer schedule! How are you kicking your summer off?
