Did I mention I was going to be in Florida last week? It was a lovely and relaxing week of sun and fun at the beach with the family. Despite a chilly start the first day, the remainder of the week was perfect...sunny and toasty warm, but not sticky, hot and humid.
We spent our days playing in the sand in Siesta Key, looking for shark's teeth and shells, and splashing in the pool. We did a day at Legoland, visited the Mote Aquarium in Sarasota and basically just relaxed and enjoyed some quality family time.
I started my teaching career in Florida (at Eastbrook Elementary in Winter Park and Goldsboro Elementary in Sanford...anyone from there?) and always get nostalgic when I drive by Florida elementary schools with the outdoor campuses. I had such a great experience down there and miss the fabulous field trip opportunities.
I'm trying to get caught up on emails, Facebook comments and Q&A left at my teacher store. I apologize if you are waiting to hear from me. I'm hoping to be caught up soon.
I also wanted to mention that I added word verification and approval checks to the comments on the blog. I apologize. I personally loathe those annoying "prove you're not a robot by typing these words" things. I swear there is something wrong with me because I am NEVER able to get it right the first time...or the 12th time for that matter. I was able to go almost 2 years without needing it, but the spam comments were getting out of control so I had to put these things in place. Hopefully it will be a temporary thing.
Do you have any fun vacations planned?
