Today was officially my last day of work for the summer! I had to go in and clean up my classroom a bit, but we were done by 11:30 a.m.

Breakfast was egg in a hole (1 egg, 1 slice of bread) and a glass of OJ:

I also had a about 4 strawberries with the cheese ball spread.

Lunch was a pulled pork sandwich (about 1/2), 1/4 cup baked beans, and 1/2 cup seafood salad. I also had 1 beer and a fudgesicle.

Dinner was leftover pasta:

This evening I went to a games night with friends. I had 2 drinks throughout the evening, and an ounce of goat cheese with a few rice crackers when I got home.

It feels so good to know that I don't have to get up for work in the morning :-) Just one of the perks of being a teacher!

Who was your favourite teacher, and why? What do you miss most about elementary school? High school? University? What is your best/ worst memory from school? Did you love school, or hate it?

My favorite teacher was my 11th grade English teacher. She was an older lady who treated all her students as if they were her children. She would keep a stash of granola bars and candy in case we were hungry in the mornings, yet she was stern and would push us hard when it came to schoolwork.

I definitely miss RECESS the most back in the days of elementary school. There's nothing like stretching the legs and getting all that balled up energy out in the middle of the day.

That treat you made looks really good... so good in fact, and RIGHT up my alley for bad treats, that I can never have it. I'll just have to enjoy it via digital photo.

My boss makes that spread for a dessert potluck we do at Christmas (yes dessert potluck = tummy aches). I do not miss college at all! My fave teacher of all time was my kindergarten teacher. She was also a neighbor and her daughter babysat my sister and me.

That cheese dessert looks fabulous- I could so be all over that!

Happy summer- hope you have some fun and relaxation planned. I know teachers work HARD!

My favorite teacher has to be my first grade teacher. She helped me learn English and was the sweetest lady ever.

wow... that desert cheese ball looks dangerous!! I'm pretty sure it wouldn't last in my house!!

I loved school, but I got picked on big time. But I always loved my teachers, and loved the kids, even though they were super mean. I had tons of favorite teachers - I was lucky that way!! :)

A friend of mine makes a cheeseballs similar to that and it is too good. You seriously cannot keep me away from it. My favorite teacher was my physics teacher Mr. Johnson. I actually had him for another science class too. He made class fun and really took pride in teaching in a way we would enjoy learning. He rocked!

I was lucky enough to have some really fantastic teachers growing up and I think my favorite was my fifth grade teacher (who I also had in second grade). She went out of her way to feed my love of books and took us on SO many cool field trips!
