I am about to chaperone an 8th grade Close-Up trip. It will be hard work: a red eye flight and then lots of walking, talking, learning, and teaching for 6 entire days (and nights). BUT, I will not have to:
teach all day and then…
- cook meals;
- grocery shop;
- feed the dog;
- do laundry; and
- drive kids to schools and violin lessons
This trip ought to be an R&R of sorts!
