Our Sweet Mini-Break by Terricha Phillips

What type of Spring Break does a 2-year-old toddler have? Not much, since his daycare is in session during a typical Spring Break week, and there are a few designated off days for professional development and holidays. Knowing this, I schedule my time off…

The Power of a Wish by Vernita Finch

When asked to write about Spring Break, a plethora of memories flooded my thoughts. Vacations, relaxation, sleeping in…you know, all of the things that go the way of fantasies once you have kids. I will admit, I panicked. Did people really want to hear…
