...I must say...this first week of summer vacation has been GREAT. I mean it. I have been enjoying it so far, drawing, packing, driving, napping...all on my own time and terms. And today, it dawned on me.
This is probably the first summer since I started teaching that I have not had some form of camp during the summer. Really.
So for almost the last twelve years, okay, let's say ten since there are two summers no accounted for...for all those years I have had a commitment to do some form of teaching in the summer. I do not regret any of those summers. Looking back through the pictures today I even got a little teary-eyed,especially when I was looking through my Legis School photos. And the art camps...so many little creative minds...so many art projects! Here is a look at all this camp-craziness;
...which brings me to right now, my first week my summer vacation 2014. Nothing. Not one camp lined up...and I am kind of excited about that. Instead of teaching camp...I am going to have my own camp, 'Camp Muse'...where hopefully I can spend my time making art, moving to our new space (more on that later), prepping for a new school year at a new school (definitely more on that later...positive thoughts this way please, I need'em!), spending time with family, felines and friends...and just...taking a minute to enjoy this time.
And I may still end up doing some camp-like thing...I know myself and I know I like to stay busy so I won't rule that out...but right now I really am relishing the thought of 'Camp Muse. It's gonna be awesome!
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
