Ahh…the time is upon us teachers. The most blessed of all times of year: summertime. Eight to ten weeks of summer sun and fun. The Carringtons kicked off this summer with three days of pool time and friends. Here is a little snapshot from the weekend.

As I read the future of the summer, it looks very similar to this past weekend. Nothing but good times with my husband soaking up the delicious days that will become even more fun as our little boy gets older. Still, I am loving the fact that Bennett still wants to take naps with me at the pool. These times will not last for long!

After the tears subsided and my pride healed, I began to lean more and more on Mrs. Scoggins for direction. Although I did my own thing (as many first year teachers may do), I began to learn a lot from the master. To this day, I still seek her approval and guidance despite her being very far away.
