Horray For Spring Break!


Senior Member
I am off till the 17th. and I am so excited about doing whatever I want. No lesson planning tonight. Tomorrow about 16 of our school staff are trotting off to Dresden, Ohio. Longaberger Homestead is there plus a lot of other shops. My husband thinks I am crazy wanting to be with my school friends on my first official day of break. Our staff at school is a great one. It does not matter if you are a teacher, custodian, or a cook, we all get along fine. It is a team effort at our school. Even the principal is going. We are all going to shop till we drop. I told my husband to go to the shooting range and have fun while I am gone. I made plans to go with him to a movie on Tuesday. For those who have not had their break yet, at least you will have Friday off and maybe Monday too.

Have fun while you shop till you drop!! Our state testing ends Monday, and our Spring Break starts on Friday. We have the entire next week off!!! :D My husband and I are going on a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise, so we will be counting down the days this week!! :p

Have a great time

We have 1/2 days Monday-Wednesday, with parent/teacher conferences in the afternoons. Then we're off Thursday-Tuesday. We're heading to the beach!

Have fun

Wow! Your trip to Dresden sounds fun! I went there several years ago on a bus trip. What a beautiful place! Hope you have a great time. You'll have to let us know about your trip and the shopping:).
Enjoy your break! Ours is next week:)!!!

Have a great trip! We usually get out to the Homestead a couple of times a year, and we always enjoy seeing what they're making in the plant. Hartstone Pottery in Zanesville is another place where I drop some serious bucks. I hear they are producing some of the pieces for the Longaberger pottery line now. It is very pretty this time with all of the spring landscaping they do. Have a safe trip! (Our break isn't for another couple of weeks. We have Good Friday off, then a full week of school, then finally, break!).

I had promised my kids that they could do a gardening craft "during spring break." I promised I'd patch the baseball shirt "during spring break." I promised a trip to McDonald's to try the new play equipment "during spring break." I promised a shopping trip for my daughter "during spring break." I promised Easter Candy could be eaten "during spring break."

We've done the craft. I patched the shirt. I put off the McDonald's until a different day because it's Monday and we always go to Sonny's on this day. I told them we'd get the candy once they finished eating all the grapes. Shopping tomorrow!

Now they want to go to the library. I love spring break.

Free for 10 Days

We got out on Friday. I was so exhausted that I literally went to bed when I got home. I have enjoyed today being at home and just reading a book for entertainment. I was SO ready for this break.

Will Friday ever come???

Our first day of testing went fine...

We are ending up a book fair on Thursday, so after I get that all totaled up I will be out the door.

I am trying to talk hubby into taking me to Columbus to go to the Archivers scrapbook store and then to the Cheesecake Factory! Church on Sunday and then freedom until Thursday--I have to take my son to Virginia Tech for campus tours (he graduates '07) and then on Friday/Saturday it is our daughter's turn for open house at Marshall U. She starts in the fall:( .

After Spring break it is all downhill from there!
