Tomorrow I head back to work. Sam will split his day with online courses, a part-time janitor job, and teaching art at a local summer camp. Hope leaves with the church youth group for a week of camp. The two little kiddos start “summer camp” at daycare. In other words it is back to reality for we grown-up people and the kiddos will have a summertime blast.
Staycation was marvelous with minimum tantrums from kids and adults. Hope didn’t really participate. She started her first job and has spent a fair amount of time working, but I did get to spend a morning out with her shopping. Staycation began with a trip to the grocery store wherein I bought Things I Never Buy: SODA. The week was busy, but laid back. A birthday party, a picnic, trips to the library and the park, a trip to the water park, dinner with friends, and plenty of playtime. It was a nice break, but I’m eager to get back to a schedule.
