Spring Break Has Come and Gone!
A whole week off and boy did Miss Tripp rest, rest, REST!!! I was sick a good bit of the time, but now I'm doing much better. Once I got on my feet, I enjoyed relaxing around the house, taking some walks, doing a little spring cleaning, watching Netflix, and learning how to repair things around the house. I caulked cracks in my window sills, repaired nicks on the walls, painted trim around the windows, and even bought a wireless screw driver to put together a filing cabinet stand and a desk. I'm very proud of myself, and I see a lot of "around the house" projects in my future!
There was another important event I was apart of during the break. A group of teachers and myself gathered together on the steps of the statehouse and shared our thoughts and ideas about current education legislation being considered by our state government. We as citizens of the United States have a wonderful right, our 1st Amendment rights, of being able to publicly gather together to express our opinions and thoughts. My group also met with a legislator to share these ideas we feel very strongly about. I hope each of you will sometime during your lifetime will also evoke your 1st Amendment rights!
So, how did you keep yourself busy this spring break? I'd love to hear about what you did. If you didn't like your spring break, tell me how you wish you could have spent it! I can't wait to read what you write!
