Let The Fun Begin


    It's not considered "hoarding" if it pertains to  your career, right????
         What better way to end the last official day of work, than with good friends, food, sunshine and a beer at noon?  I can't think of a better way to kick it off!  Summer in Saskatoon is a pretty sweet deal.

They say a change is as good as a rest....so, let's prove it!


June 27, 2012
     Today was the last day of work with students for the year.  But unlike the 23 end-of-Junes which have come before it, today marks the beginning of 14 months away from work, and I couldn't be more excited!  I have been looking forward to this day for the last three years.  After a very bad work experience, I decided to look into other ways of spending my time.  After all, life is too short to be unhappy.  So, I decided to take advantage of the deferred salary option I have at work and the countdown began!  In some ways, the time seems to have flown by and in others it couldn't get here fast enough.  
     And so today, I begin what I hope will be a year of incredible opportunity, experience, reflection and fun!   Who knows what is in store?  I am looking forward to seeing what is to come.
     I started it off this past weekend with my family here for the Jazz Festival.
     Today was a mixture of some sadness and much excitement as I said good-bye to the great kids and families at my school.  Receiving things such as these means a great deal to someone who teaches.  At least they do to me.







     So now I have two more days to finish things up at school and then "Bob's Big Adventure" can finally begin.  I can't wait to see what is in store!!  Join me, if you like, to see what is out there.....  :)
