Summing up this summer...

I never like to see a summer come to an end.

Sure I know there are countless professions that do not get to enjoy a "summer" break like those of us who are in education do. However, the longer I teach, the more convinced I am that summer breaks are to maintain teacher sanity, to recharge, to rest, to get away, to shut down, to just be. 

That's what this summer was. That's what this summer needed to be. 

It's not that I'm "dreading" going back to work (I do enjoy my job most days) however there's a part of my heart that is reserved for summer. A part of my heart that comes alive in the summer. 

That part of my heart that is reserved for summer is very much wrapped up in a week spent down at Camp Quaker Haven.
