The Life of Bon: Bring it, summer!

Bring it, summer!

My last official day of school was on Wednesday.  I walked right out those glass doors and straight into summer.  There are a plethora of problems with teaching, but somehow I feel like all teaching injustices are made right over the 10 week summer break.  Every complaint about my profession I've had throughout the year vanishes when I remember... summers off!

To celebrate the night we did a little campfire with my best friend and her husband and child.  It brought me back to my school days... the last night of school we built a huge bonfire and burned all of our school work from the whole year.  Something about watching your work go up in flames was very satisfying to me at 15 years old.  I have a feeling that if I burned all the papers I graded over the year it would be equally satisfying.

Life is good.


+ If you are wondering what books not to read this summer, I've got some suggestions for you.
+ I rediscovered this post I wrote on fighting in marriage... such interesting comments from you guys!
+ We're in the midst of Bachelorette Season... this was how I found out that my husband is secretly in love with the show.
+ I have received such kind thoughts on this post I wrote yesterday- it is terrifying to be so vulnerable on the internet.
+ Loved this post that Jeanine wrote on moving and packing tips... I'll be needing a few, that's for sure!


  1. I wish I had thought to do that with my friends every year on the last day of school! Sounds pretty epic.

  2. Woo hoo for summer!! Enjoy it!

  3. Oooh, a bonfire sounds perfect! Since I've been out of school, we usually just drink wine and let my brother light off fireworks. Standard.

  4. CONGRATULATIONS!!! It's got to feel so good. This is your sister.

  5. Wow, I wish I had 10 weeks off, LUCKY!!
