All good things must come to an end. Today two things come to an end, the Slice of Life Challenge, and Spring Break. I really enjoyed them both this year. Even though there are days where I don’t feel like writing, I think that is the point of this challenge. It challenges you to feel just like our students feel sometimes. You have to push through on those days that you are just not into it. What is probably my favorite parts about this whole thing is the interaction with the other bloggers. Some I know, some I have never met. Each person that takes a second out of their day to read your slice, and then comment on what they thought of it. That part is what I get the most satisfaction out of. I also really enjoy reading what others are doing and going through. It gives me a behind the scenes look into a lot of my friend’s lives that I otherwise may have never known about. I will miss reading these stories and even writing my own. Until next year!
As far as spring break goes, my wish was to go somewhere warm. That didn’t happen. If my wife didn’t have such a brutal work week, I seriously would have packed up and found some last minute place to go. Since that wasn’t in the cards, we decided that we would make the best of it here. If feel like we did a great job of that. I conquered my list, and even got some fun nights out minus the kids. Last night we went out with my sisters and brother-in-laws to a little dive bar and played some games. It was a much needed night out to close out break. Today sucks a little because of it, but it was worth it. I am bummed to see this break come to an end today. I will miss hanging with my two amazing kids. I will miss being able to go and find different places to go and explore. The nice thing is that summer break is only a blink away. Then we get to do it all over again. Only this time, maybe not so many things in a row. That was a little exhausting. Hopefully next year we can find a place to get away to. One last treat for break will be visiting my niece, who works at Graham’s Ice Cream. If you haven’t been…go!!
It has been real Slicers! Lets finish strong!
