When you're the Principal there really is no such thing as a vacation. I am responsible 24/7/365. I am totally ok with that. It means fielding phone calls and texts about problems while waiting on a parade to begin at my alma mater. It means traveling to Starbucks at 10:30 at night to send out the weekly Memo because there is no Internet on the mountain at my mother in law's. it was a nice night for a drive and my teenager was a great assistant!
