School's Out!

Oh, thank goodness! School is out for the summer. This year was particularly difficult:

  • We had a new schedule with 6 classes and no seminar (homework/study hall period).
  • I worked in three departments: Special Ed (my home base), Math (my specialty) and Science.
  • It was my first full year as a teacher.
  • I'm a grad school student.
  • And lots more.
I don't feel like I've ever earned time off quite like this before. This time is also perfect for adventures. This year we're heading to France, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa (in 9 days!!!). Next year I hope to head to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada to see the belugas and/or polar bears. Peru is on our list (we can't decide between the Amazon and Machu Picchu yet). Also a cruise as a more relaxing adventure (but to somewhere amazing... like the fjords of Norway or something) is on the list for a few years from now when we plan to start having/adopting babies.

As we are now paid fairly well for our contributions to society, I don't see a reason not to go on at least one incredible adventure per year.
