This fall break I was working as a student leader for an outdoor recreation backpacking trip and we went to the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina. It was very exciting. We backpacked for about 24 miles in the course of 3 days. It was awesome! 

My Thanksgiving break plans are going back to St. Louis and celebrating with my family. We go to my dad’s family’s Thanksgiving on Friday and we go to my mom’s family’s Thanksgiving on Thursday. I’m very excited for the food and we will be watching the Iron Bowl on tv. 

My winter break plans are going home to St. Louis and having fun with my family.  These are the same plans I have every year. I go home and see my very good friends. Also, this year I’m turning 21 so I will see all of my family and pretty much all of my friends from St. Louis and I’m very excited.
