Counting down

As a teacher, I feel like I'm always counting down to something. Thanksgiving weekend. Christmas break. Spring break. The last day of school. The next potty break.

I think this is partly why I love advent calendars so much... not only for the chocolate, but for the counting down! I remember my first year of college, I bought myself SIX chocolate advent calendars. I felt so rebellious. I know... you're scandalized.

Right now, I'm counting down until I get on a plane to France and visit my parents who I haven't seen in over a year!! We're skipping out of town a full day early. I don't like to miss all the Christmas parties at school, but my own celebration takes priority. Plus we're saving hundreds of dollars just by leaving on a Thursday instead of a Saturday!

Anyways, it's only FIVE MORE DAYS until we are on our way here:

What exciting plans are you counting down to?

I love that you also count down to potty breaks; me too.

What an exciting time for you! Enjoy your family and that wonderful time you are giving them.

I think I may get a chocolate advent calendar...sounds yummy.

C'est vraiment leur maison? C'est ou? Nous avons 9 jours! C'est vrai! Le 23 c'est notre dernier jour d'ecole. Incroyable. Tu es francaise?

I am also counting down until winter break...5 days, and one of them is early release, so it's like 4 1/2! Then there is 15 weeks between winter break sprig break-yuck!

I just sort of realized there's only a week left of school for my kids... now I feel excited-- or is it panicked?!?

So happy for you! Safe travels. And, I never realized that I am always counting down. I even have it on my class blog. Most people think the year begins in January. We know it is September and ends in JUNE! I will be enjoying the holiday with my new husband and very grown up children who will be visiting. Can't wait.
