There’s this.

And at my school, there’s often this.

But one of the best reasons to become a teacher is this…

Spring Break.

Last week, I went up to the north shore of Superior with my two dear friends




We shivered our way through the first night of camping, but it only got warmer from there, ending in a freak 80-degree and sunny April 1st. Since most Minnesotans plan for snow that early in April, we found ourselves largely and wonderfully alone at the campsites and as we hiked. We saw alot of waterfalls,

and a little bit of shoreline,

and no bears!

The three of us returned home, smelly and sooty, to our respective husbands…

and this is how we felt about seeing them after 4 long days apart…
