Well, it is official.
I need a vacation from my vacation.
That is why I slept over ten hours last night and still haven’t gotten out of my pajamas.
It just can’t be helped. My hands are tied.
And, by the way, I worked on my vacation. I actually went to a school and I worked.
Except not really. And I would do it again in a heartbeat.
The Sandals Foundation has a weekly Reading Road Trip that anyone can go on during a stay at one of their resorts.
So the hubby and I signed up months ago, ordered some children’s books, packed them up, and off we went.
We went to the West End Early Childhood Preschool in Negril. Children between the ages of 3 and 6 attend this school. I was concerned I would be attending a high school or something and I was so nervous. But nope.
Children between the ages of 3 and 6 — well, I’m taller than they are so I just automatically felt a lot more comfortable.

Swoon . . . I so heart you, Teeny. You are one in a million 🙂 Oh, and I am still laughing about yesterday's post. I actually had to spit the water back into my glass so it didn't shoot out of my nose. True story. What a trip my friend 🙂

I admire you even more now than I did before. Incredible; so envious! Of the school work in Jamaica, not necessarily the vacation. Okay, maybe a little bit of the vacation. What a great post! Thanks so much for sharing it!
