In ten years when Mitch and I look back at this tranformative summer, I think that these two weeks will be what we remember most. Starting in about one hour (when Maren goes down for nap) I will officially hit the ground running and not stop until next week. Here is a glance at my to-do list:
Finish my art portfolio
Polish my PE portfolio
Finish my Student Teaching portfolio
Hair cut at 645
Complete my lit assignments for the week and take a quiz
Go to class from 430-1030
Start my capstone paper
Pick up veggies from our CSA
Complete my capstone paper and turn it in
Turn in anything else for any classes
Double check that I haven’t forgotten anything
Pack my bags!
Go to Rocheport, MO to watch my best friend from high school get married (I know, random, right? Story to come later….)
Party it up. I have never been away from Maren for more than a few hours. Drinking and lounging will be involved.
Take Maren to visit her new daycare for an hour or so. Try not to cry. Bring tissues anyway.
Attend my very last class of my undergraduate career. I’m going to type that again, because maybe then I’ll believe it. Attend my very last class of my undergraduate career. Very. Last. LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST.
Turn in art portfolio
Re-pack my bag, pack Maren’s bag
Tuesday the 26-August 3rd Family Vacation in Minnesota
(wherein I have to take two finals for my online classes, also wherein I will finally GET UP on two skis)
Begin student teaching a class of 2nd graders.
