Three and a half hours of what????

I just finished my last test that I am going to have to take to qualify for teaching other than my finals this week. This test is called the PLT. It is basically about Principles, Learning and Teaching children. There were about 15 case study questions that I had to write about each one of them according to the questions and 24 multiple choice questions. It took forever. It is so frustrating when it takes them four tries just to hand out the testing booklets.

I HATE TESTS!!!!!!!! At least I finished, some of the students didn't get finished. I hope I passed so I don't have to take it again. I hope you are all crossing your fingers that I pass. It is so nice to have one more thing behind me. Angela also had to take the ACT about four weeks ago because if she passed with a certain score she could start to take college classes and she did. She received a 23, which I think is pretty good for a Freshman in High School. Congrats Ang.

I can't believe my Summer is right around the corner.
I wish I had more Summer fun trips planned. Any ideas????

I haven't even thought about summer yet. I guess it's time!

No ideas for summer yet... and congrats on finishing the test. I am sure you did well... and on my post, did you have any trouble with the link? I was on my end, but I was thinking it was because I had already done the test.

One of our families most favorites vacations was down to the cliff dwellings in Colorado, Mesa Verde. My kids weren't that old but absolutely were so intrigued by everything they saw. If you haven't been there I highly recommend you checking it out.

Yellowstone is always a great place to visit too!

We've just planned to go on a bunch of camping trips this summer, teaching the kids how to fish and cook with dutch ovens and hiking...

We don't have any fun trips planned. At least for the family. My older two Scout camp and a school summer camp. I guess I need to look and see when would be good if at all this Summer.

It must feel so good to be done with your tests. It will feel even better when you get the results!

I just hang out with my little kids all summer. I don't have ideas for people without little kids! Maybe in 10 years!
