Vacation is over...

I just returned from a fantastic weekend in Sausalito with my family!  We stayed on the most amazing restored ferry!  This beautiful ferry was built circa 1880 and is full of history.  It was the first passenger ferry in Puget Sound and was originally christened "The City of Seattle."  A 3000 square foot  beautiful floating house complete with a lovely fireplace!  We loved our time and made this our "home away from home" for the weekend.

We left our little boat for a bit to stroll through Sausalito, then we road the Golden Gate Ferry over from Sausalito to SF and enjoyed some yummy clam chowder and sourdough, walked the fisherman's wharf, enjoyed the sea lions' antics and returned via ferry to enjoy an evening of reading and playing games on our little "house boat".
These are the lovely sea lions that have taken over the boat docks at Pier 39! 












Now, I have to admit, I can feel panic setting in!  Don't you hate that?!  School begins tomorrow, vacation has ended, and I'm not sure I'm really ready for tomorrow!

I did sneak into my classroom and tidy up a bit, but I don't really feel ready.  It's a real bummer.  If I enjoy my vacation, then I'm not ready for school, but if I get ready for school during my vacation, well, then I didn't really have a vacation.  Any way, I'll be ready...

My big news I want to share with you is...da, da, da, da....
