    I would love to hear about this trip. I went on a medical mission trip last summer and it was great, first time traveling to another country (that wasn't on cruise vacation) and it was eye opening - would love to do another one. I have been looking into other medical mission trips - really would like to find something not religious based - but right now with 2 kids in college I need to wait a few more years.
    I have a friend who goes to Haiti on medical mission trips. She has invited me but I feel like my kids are still too young for me to leave them for that long to go overseas. One day though! It's definitely on my bucket list!

    I'm looking forward to my vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC for a week in July. The hardest thing I'll do this summer is being a chauffeur for my 2 kids going to baseball, basketball and robotics camps. I'm also taking 2 online classes for my Master's degree then I'll be done with all my core courses. When I have time, I'll be trying to make my nurse friends at the hospital jealous by taking selfies at the community pool and bragging about how I have 2 months off with my kids.

    We're planning a family road trip to Oregon to visit some friend. We'll do some camping and some fishing and hopefully a trip into Portland so I can go to Voodoo doughnuts.

    Look into Doctors Without Borders. They are one of the few non religious charity organizations.

    I have always wanted to go on Mercy Ships during the summer. I will give you an update when I can. This will be my first time out of the country.

    Well, nothing glamorous, I assure you, mostly trying to get my yard in shape. I have a nasty small pine for which I intend to do battle. I just bought the house a year and a half or so ago. What nimrod plants a pine tree that close to the house?! They belong up north where God put em! LOL

    We lose our Seniors next week. We're in school for another two weeks after that. Then I have two weeks off and I'm over at the next school covering summer school. Hopefully it will be quiet.

    I am taking my two kids (hubby has to work) to Springfield IL for my family reunion,
    River's ears perk up crazy, small world as that's my hometown though I haven't lived there for close to 20 years!!!

    The first half of the summer will be me chauffeuring my children to theater camp, golf camp & ballet camp. The the other half takes the oldest child to Scout Camp and then the best is a blissful week of the oldest at overnight camp! After that the kids and I (husband doesn't have the time off work) are taking an epic 3 week roadtrip to .... yes, Springfield, IL! Land of Lincoln, in the middle of the Prairie State, among the fields of corn and beans! On our trip we plan on visiting friends and family along the way (we will go and come back through different states to maximize the folks we can see. The last time we did a trip like that was when I was still a stay at home 4 years ago so I'm excited to have the summer off to have the chance to see lots of people I haven't been able to visit and my youngest doesn't remember our last trip.

    I still have three more weeks. Planning on spending as much time as possible on Cape Cod (grew up down there and my mom still lives there) with the kids and then in August taking a family vacation to Lake Michegan/Chicago/ Illinois (using much of the tips given earlier this year while in Chicago). Recently accepted a new position next year where I will be covering per dium for 15 nurses in a town nearby. If they like me I will have first choice if any of those jobs open up full time. I am looking forward to the change as the salary is better, the hours are better and I look forward to being part of a district (vs alone at a private school like I am now) with support and coverage.
