Challenging myself to write every day! Seeking six is about the pursuit of the ideal. It is the perfect number for diabetics, but the secret is all about finding balance to get there. Balance in teaching, balance in life.

Have you started to think about your summer plans yet? Today I just made some. I know that I will be working, but I always must escape to the woods to completely disconnect. I just made some plans to head to Elkmont in the Smoky Mountain NP. I camp almost every summer with my family and some friends. In Elkmont there is no cell phone access, no wifi, and definitely no screen time. We laze in our hammocks and read. We hike, raft, and float. When I play my cards right or plan well in advance, we get the tent sites that back up to a small stream and are off the road. It makes a great play area for my daughter. I was able to secure those sites today. Yeah!
I am also contemplating going to the Friends for Life conference for my personal learning and I know that I will spend weekdays spring hopping, soaking in the icy blue springs under the shade of live oaks finding relief from the hot Florida sun.
