Mom blowing bubbles in the backyard
I am not even exaggerating when I tell you I believed it would NEVER happen. From a two week long teacher strike, to a surprise week of snow days, to AP/IB testing and finals, school stretched on and on and on. Today was my very last day of school. The excitement bubbled in me throughout this entire week as I slowly crossed classes off my mental schedule.
This is the last French class I will ever take. The last time changing in the girl’s locker room. The last time I’ll ever sit through a lecture about art.
And while saying goodbye to some of my teachers was a little bittersweet, another door opens. A gigantic flowery door that smells like sunshine and blueberry stains and cotton sundresses.
Here are the things I have to look forward to:
- Now officially being a senior!
- A job (turned in my application today)
- Sleeping in
- Movies, beach, mall, repeat
- Long walks with the Canon at any moment in the day
- And of course, lots and lots of baking.
I am so, so looking forward to sharing this month’s Daring Bakers challenge with you all. But for now, I leave you with some jelly I made last weekend. Any ideas what kind it is?
