The Importance of Breaks

I have a lot of friends who hate breaks in school.  They wish we could just go full steam ahead and finish the year.  I couldn't agree less.  Sure, I hate when a teacher prep day sneaks up on me... but breaks are so important.

1.  Teachers need a break.  I think it's SO nice when everyone comes back refreshed, especially the teachers!  I mean can any of you imagine teaching?  Just the idea of doing it day in and day out.  It's just important that they get some days off to breathe a little. :)

2. Variations in schedule.  I am SO excited not to pack lunches, not to have to prod everyone to get going.  It's so nice to just have a break from the regular.

3.  See things.  I do think that vacations are definitely God given.  It's so nice to get out of your regular realm and see things from a different viewpoint.  I wish we had more money to totally travel the world, but until then, we live in one of the best states to do some serious site seeing.  We feel very lucky that way.

Anyway, just so glad we have breaks in our school year.  So glad that my husband is off during those breaks.  Totally a perk.  And for now, we need all the perks we can get. :)


  1. What are you guys up to this week?

  2. I completely agree with you. I think because I don't work outside of my home I maybe enjoy it more. I guess if I had to rearrange my work schedule and take time off because the kids were out it might be different. I miss them when they are away and on our breaks I'm just glad to have us all together and take a much more relaxed approach to our mornings. It is nice to plan day trips to enjoy it with all of us. Plus, no packing lunches, no pick-up/drop-off to schedule everything else around. It's a beautiful thing!

  3. I get tired of packing lunches, too! Glad I'm not the only one.
