Back from Vacationland!

The problem with Vacationland is that it makes Normal-land seem so... normal. My summer break is half over and I've loved every minute.

I went to the Vacationland where the churches are domed, and the statues are perfect. There was not a shortage of walled cities overlooking rolling hills. These were some of the most beautiful places I've ever set my eyes on, and I am already aching to go back.

As soon as I returned, I spent a week at a fantastic classroom management workshop. It felt like Vacationland for teachers, and it was fabulous.

Then, I got the chance to spend a week in the ACTUAL Vacationland, where you spend all day swimming and where boyfriends set the table. (What? Candles?!)

Obviously, when you're at Vacationland, you have to have lobster. And when we have lobsters, we do it right. Paired with a big bowl of steamers, and a small bowl of melted butter. This is what I look forward to throughout the entire school-year.

Steamers and Lobsters. It's how to do summer right.
