Vacation Poem (SOL #29)

Spring Break is a special time of year

A chance to breathe

To visit family out of state

And to read to my heart’s content

I still have a few days left

And I’m cherishing them

When I go back next Monday,

I’ll be well-rested

And ready to tackle the fun of middle school again! 


Florida (SOL #27)

This morning, I flew from Cincinnati, OH to Jacksonville, FL on Allegiant Airlines. Normally when I fly Allegiant, there are many delays, we board late, and it’s not always the best experience. But as a discount airline, you get what you pay for, and that’s fine with me. I’ll take a few hiccups for a cheaper flight.

Today, however, everything went well. We boarded on time (6:30 a.m.), and even though we got on with zone 5, I was able to get my carry-on in the overhead compartment easily. The flight took off on time, and landed on time – it was a Spring Break miracle!

My husband and I are now in Florida visiting my brother, sister-in-law, and niece, as well as his mom’s extended family. I’m glad I get to spend Spring Break with my family in Florida, and relax a little bit from schoolwork. I brought some grading along with me, but it might just wait until I get back. I need a little extra time to pause and recharge, to read and spend some time with loved ones.
