My Last Day of Summer

There are SO many things for us teachers to do as we prepare for the school year to begin!  And even though this is my 29th year of teaching, I can always think of more that could or should be done. ;-)  Yep, we teachers are like that.  We are never finished ... there is always more to do!

Sunday morning was beautiful ... I decided to surprise my family with an infamous DillyDally family treat!
Caramel Rolls!
A day that begins with hot coffee, a caramel roll and knitting can't be beat!  Yep, a start like that guarantees that it will be an outstanding dillydally day!
The concerns about my classroom were set aside ... and we hit the road!  Ah...remember ... there is only one road!  Hee-hee!

I went on a long walk ...
... attempting to soak up as much green as possible.
We set up the camp chairs ...
... and started a camp fire!
Kysa sought refuge in the shade ...
... while we enjoyed the view from our picnic spot.
Our tired fishermen seemed to enjoy the chance to spend time in a camp chair while roasting their hotdogs ...

... and it wouldn't be a picnic without S'mores!

The day ended as beautiful as it had begun!  My last day of summer was a perfect dillydally day!
Do what you love.  Do dillydally!

  1. Beautiful! What a wonderful way to spend the last day of summer vacation.

  2. Looks like a perfect day! 29 years! You were always one of my favorite teachers. I hope you have a wonderful start to your school year. The caramel rolls....are making me pull out the 'ole ribbon bound cookbook (all your recipes of course!), maybe I'll teach my 8 year old how to make those for our first day of homeschool!

  3. I was wondering if you might give me the recipe for the caramel rolls? And your s'mores look a little different then what I remember. I am not a fan of milk or dark chocolate, but your s'mores look delicious. Would you share your s'more recipe too? Thank you!
