Well, as of Monday vacation will be officially over over - although I've already been attending meetings and planning and preparing all week and throughout the break. Before getting back in the classroom I just want to look back at break - times of fellowship and gaming and celebrating - what a good break we had!!
For the first time since August I got to truly relax . . . ahh . . . so many books, so little time!!We had friends and family over and played lots and lots of games! I even played a game of solitaire Mah-jongh and won. Here's the proof (might not happen again for a while!).We had fun celebrating the season - decorating our new house for the first time - having everyone at our place for the Christmas day meal - getting cards, letters and pictures from friends and family near and far - good stuff!
I love this picture Sierra took of me at our family party!We celebrated at Mom and Dad's too! . . . and the guys opened gifts grom Grandma in Michigan!David and the boys were back at it a week ago - note the somber expressions - actually they've made a good transition back, and I trust I will too, but it's good to look back and remember the awesome (and much needed) break that we had!
Happy New Year everyone!
