Abend HTL - Summer Vacation Blog (corrected version)

WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO?

Is anyone else bummed that summer is over?

I  actually enjoyed my summer holidays this year.  Usually I am totally exhausted at the end of the semester and it takes me weeks to catch up on sleep.  As a result I have no desire to do anything for school.  However this summer was different. I took time to sort through two years of school papers.  Moreover I was able to plan for the next school year.

The highlight of the summer for me was my family’s annual trip to Minnesota where we rented a cabin.  My parents live in Iowa, so we had to drive 500 miles over two days to the North Shore of Lake Superior.  While we were there we simply relaxed – we went out to eat, played cards, went canoeing, and read books which I never have time for during the school year.  We even saw the solar eclipse! 


But all good things must come to an end.  I am happy to be back at school where I can finally practice my work-life balance skills.  Of course, there will be challenges but I think it is going to be a good year.  What do you think?
