Summertime Recap...

Considering that school has been in session for almost week, it's probably about time that I stop basking in the bliss of Summer, wrapping myself in the arms of summertime sadness instead... #teacherprobs

A few people have harassed asked me when I plan on getting back to the le blog, so to practice my Southernness... "Hey Ya'll. I'm back.

Before I get back in the blogging groove, let me do a recap of the Summer of '15. 

1. Kiki la Rue and I flew across the pond to London and Paris...I'll post about this separately. Here's an abridged photo dump in the meantime. 

Big Ben and the Thames via the London Eye

Harry Potter Studios.. I'd like to think that I wouldn't be a muggle. I totally have a magic that's all my own. #confidence 

The size of the lions at Trafalgar square really did freak me out. It was so far to the ground...  Quite comical, but I really was terrified to get this particular photo op.   #conqueryourfears #TravelingPhotoOpProbs
"Bottoms Up" to the water at the Roman Baths... What you don't see is how disgusting the water tasted. 

Because when a cheerleading coach goes to Stonehenge, she's got to be involved in a stunt.

Basilica of Sacre-Coeur, MontmartreParis
2. I took a 2-week Literacy class... (sounds boring to non-teachers I know....) but it knocks off a course as part of a Doctoral next academic pursuit... At some point in the future, I'd like to teach some undergraduate classes in Education. 

3. To keep on the scholastic side of things, I taught a Creative Writing course to a bunch of gifted middle schoolers for a week... That was interesting... it also confirmed that high school is definitely where I want to be, for now, teaching wise. 

4. Kiki la Rue left the nest and moved into a place of her own. I'm back to flying solo at my address. I miss her cat. #catlady4lyfe

5. Two weeks of band camp... with most of those days being 9am - 9pm... some of those days, the devil was literally giving us a taste of what Hell is like...110 heat index is totally not for me. 

6. Throw in some intensive cheer practices to serve as a mini-camp for the time being, workout dates with a trainer, a visit "home" for 4th of July, time spent with friends, an audition for next month's Farce at the community theater, some home DIY, prepping to go back to school...and a myriad of randomness here and there...

So yeah...that's been my summer.
