The Close of Vacation...

It's the end of school vacation.

Jake asked me this morning why I was dancing in the kitchen.

Because today is a happy day, I said.

School tomorrow, right?

I nodded. Yup. School tomorrow.

He was not amused.

I did not care.

I love my kids. I do. I enjoyed most of the week, too. The late nights, hanging out watching movies, and sleeping in late. It's just that the lack of structure makes me wiggy.

I asked Ben and Zachary later if they had a good vacation.

Yup, Zachary nodded. It was good.

We should have gone to Florida, Ben said.

It's true. I should have gone down to my sister in law's house in Parkland and soaked up some sun. I wrote her an email and said the next time I pass up free digs for February vacation, she is to slap me.

She promised to slap me if I needed it and even if I didn't.

But tomorrow? Everyone is off to school. Back to early bedtimes and set routines. My idea of heaven.

The kids are crying.

I'm dancing.

It's the close of vacation...

Ah Sara...keep them with you as long as you can!

This morning my nephew (who lives with us) left for S.C. for Marine Basic Training......

Thats two from this house that are growing up and made decisions to join the military....

Decisions that make me want to strangle BOTH of them......

They are adults now....but I wish they were babies again. No matter how old they are - they will always be our babies.

If you say to people who don't have kids that you can't wait until vacation is over, they think you just can't handle/don't enjoy spending so much time with your kids. Sometimes they ask why you bothered to have them if you don't want to spend much time with them. That's so not it.

I get what you mean about structure. I really really do.

Congrats on the end of vacation!
