Summer is finally here, and many people have been asking me, “What do you plan to do with your summer break? Don’t you get bored?” As if I’m instantly pining away for the new school year to start. Here’s the truth on that matter: Teachers aren’t sad during the summer. We do not curl up in the fetal position and rock back and forth, begging for papers to grade as if experiencing school withdrawals. It just doesn’t happen. NO! We only have two months of the entire year to truly LIVE. Give us some credit.
What are my plans? I plan on relaxing as much as possible (for ten months of the year I’m wound up so tightly, I make skinny jeans look comfortable)- blogging, reading books, writing and editing a book, sleeping in the hammock, spending quality time with my husband, running and working out, playing with my dogs, going to the beach, working on the house, cooking yummy food, chilling with friends, relearning Spanish, etc.
And when I’m not relaxing, I’m going to work on saving the world. Yep- I’m going to make as much of an impact as I can on my mission trip to Costa Rica in July. My secret wish is to be a superhero and end human trafficking. I get to learn a bit about that this summer with the Rahab Foundation. I feel my future holds my husband as my human trafficking fighting partner, and dogs as our sidekicks. More on that later.
So, my question to you is, what are you going to do with your summer?
