Summer

We’re coming into the home stretch of the school year. Three more weeks. All the reports have been written and most of the marking has been done. Now there’s lots of administrative stuff to fill the time, including all of the planning for the new year.

It’s during these long summer days that I’m most jealous of American teachers and their three months off. You can get a lot done in three months. We get six weeks. June would be such a nice month to spend at leisure, reading in the garden, writing a book, or working on an advanced degree.

June is almost over. The longest day of the year has passed, and now we begin to ever-shorter journey to the depths of winter. Yes, it’s all downhill from here.

    Know how you feel. Midsummer is past here in Sweden and the days are once again shortening… The only difference from your experience is that here it will be colder and darker… the depths of winter are deeper. But forget that for a moment. Its summer and time to be happy! School has been off for two weeks here and there is still 7 weeks to go!! Shame I’m not a teacher!
