I had a few days off and have accomplished nothing. I've helped join two long time friends for a spring break holiday. I've toured them around the counties, taken them to one movie and out to eat twice. I've taken Andrew on a group date. I returned to work Wednesday sad because my time off was short.
John Carter, The Lorax, the different food we introduced them too, the tricks they've pulled, the Native American spear point Dalton found as they all explored the creek...all these will be tales they carry with them for the rest of their lives.
The house is a mess, we adults are exhausted, Zander took a roll down the stairs but all in all, it was a successful break from the scheduled life of structured education.
I hope they've learned the simplest joys are the best, that humor and honesty are good things, and I hope they know they are loved.
