It is Fall Break right now here in the desert.
For the first time, we have a TWO WEEK break.
And even now, smack-dab in the middle of it, I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. Oh sure, I love the time off from schedule, but I’m not sure it’s so great for the kids. And I also know this makes our summer even shorter.
But, here we are! not only in the middle of the break but also in the middle of some tricky parenting dynamics.
Boy howdy, this job is sure not for the weak of heart as we all know, right?
Trying to sort out all kinds of stuff in my heart right now, and I’m taking a “break” in the middle of the “break” to back up the beginning of the break when the big kids were here for Lucy’s birthday and we got to take a trip to the lake.
Max and Abby had to leave the day before, and we were missing Claire (volleyball), but sure loved getting some time with this crew.
Including Bo Jangles.
This is what happens to your camera roll when you bring your dog to the lake…at least in our family…
Ha!…we are a little obsessed.
Dave left for some meetings and it was just me and the kids for the majority of the morning, drenched in that desert beauty surrounding us.
Picked up Boca tacos (as per tradition) en route home, and did some speed-new-recipe-cookie-baking (had to try this new recipe from Modern Honey…SO good!) before Grace had to take E & C to the airport and I had to rush off to a presidency meeting.
