Wordless Wednesday - Relaxation!!

Hey all!

Just linking up with Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday on a Tuesday night, because who can get up that early on summer break?!
I love this link up, but it is impossible to not have any words. 

I have been trying so hard to relax this summer. My mind just always moves back to my classroom. I have a hard time remembering why I work so hard. Here are a few of those reasons.  
My son, turns 4 TODAY! Happy birthday to my sweet baby boy! He wrote his name yesterday! Obviously, it is not the prettiest, but I love it. He traced it and spelled it out the whole time. I am just so proud of him!! My hunny and I are trying to spend more time out on our deck to enjoy the summer weather. I am also trying to spend more time outdoors. I started bike riding and going to the pool more. 

So, my question:
Are you able to shut off your class brain? Or do you still work your class stuff into your relaxation time?

  1. I still work a little on school everyday so that I will not have as much to do when school starts.

  2. I have an awful time turning off my school brain. It's virtually impossible for me. :/

  3. You mean there is an off switch?


  4. Never shut it OFF...just put it in SLEEP mode..once in a while! I think we are forever learning & recreating. I am constantly thinking of things to "make my life easier." Usually that means creating something, redoing something, adding something to my day! :) Who needs sleep?? HAHA Wendy 1stgradefireworks

  5. Happy Birthday to your sweet son! And no, I'm NeVeR able to turn my mind off of school stuff!

  6. Happy birthday Reid!! I hope that you have an amazing day!! My brain never shuts off!! I am constantly thinking about something school related! Yesterday I even went to school real fast to drop something off!! I am glad that I have the downtime to work on school stuff now though, because we all know how crazy busy it is during the school year!

  7. Happy Birthday Reid!

    Oh my word! I can't shut off my school brain at all. I was already working on next year's lesson plans the day we got out of school. Hopefully, I will get better at shutting it off someday!

  8. My brain never stops! I am always thinking "school" no matter where I am or what I am doing. In the summer I find working on school things to be relaxing though because I can do it on my own time and I know what I do in the summer will make the coming year a little bit better!

  9. Happy Birthday to your boy! I don't think those school brains ever turn off... maybe just run in that background :)

  10. I don't think my brain ever gets out of school mode (no matter how hard I may try!) Love the new look of your blog. Super cute!!
