The Eagle Way staff had a wonderful Spring Break.
Please enjoy the following Spring Break stories, real and imagined.

Symone's Spring Break Story

Over the spring break I was over my dad’s house. While there, I was babysitting my oldest nephew Jonathan. He is six years old. I was basically spending time with my other family. I got to spend time with my sister Menia, father, God mother, my two nephews Jonathan and Ethan. Ethan is the youngest. He is 1 years old, going on 2 in May.

We also went out to the movies and out to eat during the week. Mostly I stayed in watching movies with Jonathan. It was fun though while I was waiting for everyone to get home. We had dinner together every night. The food was delicious.

The thing that I didn’t do over break that I was supposed to do was my science project. Honestly I thought about it, but really didn’t want to do it because it wasn’t due till almost a week later. I wanted to spend this spring break just relaxing. Every spring break we have a project to do. I think this is the first time ever we didn’t have a project due when we came back on the next Monday. I really enjoyed my spring break.

Mr. Bill's Spring Break Story

I spent my Spring Break in Phoenix, Arizona. The weather was beautiful - 85 and sunny each day. I was lounging by the pool, when I realized that something was missing from my vacation. It was then that I decided to tryout for the Chicago Cubs upcoming 2010 season.

So, I ran to the store and bought a Cub jersey. I always bring my mitt on vacation, so that was no problem. I got in my rental car and drove to the Cubs spring training home, Ho Ho Kam Park. With price tags still dangling from my new jersey, I ran onto the field and played catch with the other players. It was so much fun. I was in line at the batting cage when a uniformed security officer asked who I was and why I was there. I smiled and happily explained my mission of making the Cubs team this year to the young security guard.

Well, I was promptly escorted off the field. I'm not sure, but I think they may have even banned me from attending any future Cub spring training games. That's OK. It was a fun time for me, and I returned to the pool a happy vacationer with an interesting story.

Terrance's Spring Break Story

This is what I did over spring break. I didn’t do much over the break, but I did do something. I played a lot of CODMW2 which is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. I watch some Family Guy, and some of the characters I can name are Peter, Stewie, my favorite, Brian, Lois, Meg, Chris, Quagmire, Cleveland, Joe, Francis, and Adam West. I played some baseball at Hayes Park with my team, the Wrightwood Yankees. I went to church where they made me serve mass on my day off. I mean when feel like relaxing you just want to do nothing, but you just got to do something. I had to go to the store with my mom, and don’t you dislike when your mom says she’s going to buy some milk, but you end up paying over $100. Anyway, I just ate, slept, played CODMW2, and watched a lot of TV over the break.

Brandice's Spring Break Story
What I did for spring break was so AWESOME!!!

First thing I thought about was…where to go? So I booked a trip to Africa to get to know my people and I met this woman who had 11 toes, 12 fingers, 3 eyes, and 4 ears. She knew EVERYTHING in her village! She told me that she saw my long lost cousin walking down the road the other day. Then she said my cousin booked a trip to Paris, France two days before I arrived in Africa.

The next day I booked a trip to Paris, France to try and find my long lost cousin. I ran into a woman that had only one foot with 3 toes and a monkey and she said that my long lost cousin went to Chicago to find me. Once I heard that, I rushed BACK to the airport and booked ANOTHER trip back to Chicago. After three hours looking for my cousin at the airport, I decided to head home and call around in the morning. Once I stepped in the door I saw my long lost cousin. All I could do was cry tears of JOY!!!! And that was how I spent my spring break.
