Springing Into Action

If you're anything like me when the weather starts getting a little warmer and the sun stays out for a little longer you can't help but get excited. COVID-19 took a lot out of me and from me . It was a drag being stuck in the house with nowhere to go. But it seems as though things are turning around.

For this teacher it means SPRING BREAK. No lesson plans, zoom meetings, grading papers or anything school related. I am literally looking forward to restart, reset and rejuvenate my mind, body and soul. I am not sure how much rest I will be getting because Declan is on the move and I want to take it all in.

So I have created a Spring Break Mommy and Me Bucket list, now I'm not saying that we are going to do it all but I think fresh air can do him and I some good. So if your looking to do somethings around the DMV area during spring break check it out...
