Vacation Station

There were plenty of us doing the Friday Dance at school today. Good weather, Friday, and spring energy were enough to make the kids bounce off the walls today. I had to end silent reading early because three boys decided to sing a song about wedgies. Rather quietly, but the sound carried just enough. Yergh. I need a break.
Fifth grade wasn't dancing; they were marching. Today was their annual Civil War Reenactment. They were in "uniform", divided into North and South, with water bottles in their haversacks, wooden drill pieces over their shoulders, and ready to go. They marched from one station to the next and learned about army food, mail call, clothing of the time, and more. Semi-professional reenactors helped stage the day. The kids learn so much! It's truly a highlight of their year.

TGIF, because I need a break. I don't get out much. I've mentioned that before, and noted that it's okay. I'm not complaining. When I do go somewhere for an evening or a vacation, I enjoy it. Scribbit's latest Write-Away Contest has Vacation as its theme. Interested? Go North and West (from Wisconsin, that is) to Scribbit's blog if you'd like to enter the contest or read the posts that have already been entered. I entered this post. Vacation is a state of mind.
