Looking Forward to Summer Break

As much as I love teaching, I must admit I am looking forward to summer break. This has been the third school year that COVID has had an effect on school. It has also been a transition year for both sites I teach at transitioning to a new person as part of the team with me. This morning I counted the teaching days left and I have 28 after today.

There is another reason I am looking forward to summer break. The USA will receive 100,000 refugees from Ukraine and I am certain my city will receive many. During summer break, I will have a lot of free time to help them. I have already talked with one of the pastors at a Ukrainian church in my city about ideas for helping refugees.

I also have writing projects to work on. That means many days in the coffee shop with my laptop and coffee. πŸ™‚

I realize spring just started but that also means about nine weeks of tree pollen my worst allergy. Another reason to look forward to summer break because by then tree pollen is finished.

But it is helping Ukrainian refugees that I look forward to the most. God has led me to a place in life that summers mean more free time. Jesus has led me in life to the point that I have a lot of experience with the practical things for helping refugees.

I wish we could fast forward to summer πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Yes, indeed, looking forward to summer, too. Hopefully, a bit of slow down with the family as we prepare for a lot of shifts ahead. I definite relate on the pollen, too! Sounds like some great projects ahead of you. Praying all the best for those.

  2. So now I know why Spring is not your favourite! But there is a season for everything for us. I pray you keep peace in the 28 precious days left in this one too and strength for the season to come. Love your enthusiasm though!
