We just got back from a week of summer camp with many of our favorite Jr. High and High Schoolers.
Is there anything in the world like summer camp?
Sigh... the memories...

One thing we ask our students while we are on trips, is to take a break from social media.
If we want them to, how could I not also?

Not that it is bad, evil, or wrong... 

However, once in a while a break is good.
So good.

Guess what happens when you don't check up on what is going on in other people's lives?
You spend time sharing life with the people right in front of you.

You fully live in the moment without having to stop and share it.
Old school style.

Old school is rad.

I dare you to take a break.  It might not be easy, but I bet it will be worth it.
