“Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spring break was a couple of weeks ago, and the family and I took a trip to a campground in Golden Valley, North Carolina. It is located about an hour and a half away from Charlotte. And yes, I did absolutely zero work on Spring Break. I believe the goal of spring break is to rest, relax, and enjoy family. In fact, my work bag has sat inside my closet unopened since the first Friday I came home. There is nothing wrong with a teacher taking a break during the school year, especially during a break time. If I had brought work with me on this trip, I would not have fully appreciated this beautiful mountain stream that flowed right behind our campsite. Now I am rested, and ready for the challenges that come as the school year rapidly comes to an end.
Like I said earlier, this stream was right behind our campsite. If I opened the window to our camper, I could hear it. One of my favorite parts of the morning was waking up, drinking a cup of coffee, and listening to the stream as the water flowed by. Last week was amazing! I have way more photos that I am still going through from the trip.
