A little R and R

Hey Y’all.  I took a little break this weekend to head down south a little bit.

I am visiting my family in Wilmington, NC. I don’t know if  any of you have ever been to Wilmington, but it is absolutely beautiful! My family had a few things planned for our little get away. My husband is  Active Duty  in the US Navy…but they have the USS North Carolina set up on the river in Wilmington. My family thought we wouldn’t want to see this because of being around it so much…just the opposite! My boys LOVED it! They are future sailors FOR SURE. They had so much fun walking around the ship, even in all of those tight spaces. I, on the other hand, was ready to get out of there 🙂 I am a little skiddish when it comes to close quarters. I just don’t know how those guys do it!!!!

I just LOVE this picture. I am so proud of all the men and women current & previous who give up so much to defend our country. It is literately the ultimate duty and I am amazed and blessed to know so many of these fine people.

I’m not sure if you saw but Jen over at The Teacher’s Cauldron highlighted my Fall-Literacy-and-Math-Center-Mega-Packet 17-Centers! Be sure to hop on over and check her post out! My packet is on sale this weekend for 20% off so now is a great time to go snatch it up!!

Take an extra break today, after all, everyone needs a little r & r.
