My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Adventures for the girls SOLC #22

My teen daughters are on two separate adventures for spring break this year.  I've taken them college towns for the past two spring breaks, but this year opportunity knocked separately for them.

The oldest is heading to Florida with her friend's family.  It was stressful to help her pack, as she will be traveling from winter to summer in two day's time.  (It's still SO cold here in Illinois!)  I'm feeling a little bummed that I won't be joining her at the Harry Potter amusement park (maybe next year!), but I'm glad she's getting a chance to get away from home and relax.

The youngest is traveling to Nashville with my parents.  When my dad retired last year, they purchased a class C motorhome.  They are experienced RVers after tackling the Rocky Mountains last year.  My daughter is looking forward to campfires, country music and some kickin' boots (whatever works in her budget).  I'm glad she has time to chill out and forget about school and the drama with some of her friends.

My husband will be working a good chunk of hours next week, so what does that lead me to do?  I'm not sure.  I'm hoping I'm not too motivated to do lots of cleaning or remodeling.  I thought about a lot of projects, but the first thing on my list is to catch up on my sleep!

Ahhh.  Spring break.  I've been waiting for you!


  1. Think you should go on your own vacation! Or a spa day! Or lunch with friends, at least!

  2. Catching up on sleep is pretty high on my list, too!

  3. Ah, soon some peace and quiet. No drama. No grumbling. What's that saying? Out of sight, out of mind? No, no. Only kidding. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Enjoy the time away because the return will all the sweeter. :) Shall we say the same for us and the teachers and students??? Hmmm...yeah, we can.

  4. Enjoy your time alone! And sleep.....
