Only 9 more WUMs!

For those of us in the teaching world, the school year is coming to an end- however, the work is not. Don't ever think that teachers *truly* get 3 months off, because we don't. Most of us take about 3 weeks to download our brains of the past year's lessons, tragedies, blessings, excitements and disappointments...then we start planning, constructing, organizing, and mapping out the next. We can't help it, it's just who we are.

And I can tell I'm ready for a download. My fours are wild things more than ever, and the other day I turned out my lights (that USUALLY gets their attention) and said firmly, "Will you people please stop acting your age???" They all kinda looked at me.

Oh...what are WUMs?
Wake Up Mornings- only NINE to go! WOOHOO!

Yeah, it's kinda like that with our 5th and 6th grade class. We taught for so long without a break, but now that I finally have a break I am using the time to plan for the next quarter (but I really don't have much time to do that either because I'm still working on camp stuff). I can't believe we will have Jacob when we get back from camp. That will be cool to have a nephew in there again.

Of course, it's nice to be able to plan things when you don't have to get up so early. You scare me with your WUM's though because it sounds like on the other days you don't wake up... at all. We sure don't need any deaths or comas...

No, I DO wake up, but I wake up when I want to. And WUM just means that once you WAKE UP, you can count the day as done, because that's the hardest part! :o)
