How Teacher's Recharge: Linky Party!

I am so excited to say that "I AM ON SUMMER VACATION!" For the first month I make sure to put my teacher hat away (other than creating for TPT, which is relaxing for me) to make sure that I take the time to recharge! Teachers work very hard and we need to remember to take care of ourselves as we are always giving to others.

Here are the top three ways I plan to recharge the first month of summer vacation, which officially starts today for me (can you tell I'm excited!) :)!

First and foremost, I will spend time with my sweet little girl! She loves playing outside in the water and with her bubbles, running, gymnastics and she loves to take walks! I see numerous walks a day in our future!

 I put all of my teacher books in a drawer for a month! Don't worry I will dig them out around July; I can't stay away for too long!

Instead I pulled out a photography book that was given to me this Christmas by one of my husband’s colleagues as he knew I was interested in photography. How sweet is that?!  I am still only on page 11 :(

Being crafty is something that has always relaxed me! 

My daughter LOVES Brown Bear Brown Bear right now and I started this quilt before I had children and just never finished the binding. So this will be getting done ASAP so she can enjoy it! 

I also just recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo (if you haven't heard of this, check out my first blog post! I've been blogging about all the fun things I have created) and have started preparing for my daughters third birthday party! 

This linky party is available for all those who want to share the top three ways you recharge over the summer!
