So first off I should apologize about not getting to the TPMs sooner. The wi-fi at the Hermite Islands is shaky at best. However the trip was wonderful and I believe that I can now be 120% the teacher that I formerly was. The weather was also fantastic at the Cape and it snowed constantly. I adore snow and when I heard that it was snowing back in River Forrest, I could barely contain my excitment (If singing ocapella Winter Wonderland on a plane counts as containing my exctiement at all). Two places on opposite ends of the globe and BOTH with snow, I mean how lucky could I be. That is until I saw my house. I couldn't get in and now I am temporarily living in my classroom (At least it's the weekend) I was so caught up in how much I adore snow that I forgot that it had downsides as well. Have you ever been so caught up in something that you realize it isn't always good and has bad qualities as well, I'd love to hear!
