Goodbye Summer! - Rebekah Nyakairu

Goodbye Summer!

It’s official. Summer is over. This week I traded in my sandals for closed toe shoes, my iced coffee for a hot drink, and there has been a chill in the air. I am sad to see summer go but I am thankful for such a wonderful summer break. After all the adjustments of last year, it was nice to finally have time to rest. No more boxes to unpack. No new curriculum to teach. Time to relax and have fun. Time to feel at home and be settled. Time to be with family and friends. Time to travel and go on adventures. Below are my top ten highlights from the summer with lots of pictures!

1. Virginia Road Trip

Stacy and Todd’s wedding! I have many  memories with Stacy through small group and our infamous road trip years ago. I knew I liked Todd from the first time we all played Dutch Blitz together!
