Back when I was in high school, I had a favorite teacher. Her name was Mrs. B. She taught AP English when I was in 9th and 10th grade. Mrs. B. made the class do a lot of creative writing, and I remember her teaching us how to brainstorm before we started a paper. She would write a word on the chalkboard and we would write down everything that came to mind regarding the word. Then we would take our brainstorming words/phrases and turn them into a brilliant essay. I thought a brainstorm recap of our vacation would be nice, and spare you the details of my vacation essay. :)

Vacation 2009

And of course, I couldn't post without a couple of pictures.
