This has been a vacation week full of laughter and tears (goodbye routine!). We’ve been mending bodies that are trying desperately to stay healthy, enjoying family time in another state, and playing games that require a doctorate in astrophysics to understand.
It’s been fun.
Wouldn’t you agree, Sweetman?
I think he went on a
long quick Starbucks run.
In addition to all of the fun and games, we’ve had a few new interesting conversations, too.
“I’m not gonna teacher you any more daddy.”, promised Sweetgirl.
“What’s that now?”, he asked.
“Teacher you! You KNOW, Daddy, drive you crazy.”, she explained.
“Ah, you mean torture me?”
“Yeah, that word.”
So she says…
And then, Sweetboy… He who is obsessed with All Things Maps and All Things Countries, presented us with this little list of Countries that interest him. Some, he’d like to visit. Some, he hopes never to have to.
Beware the Puffer Fish!
As of press time, he informed me there are new ones he’d like to add. And I’m guessing poor Papua New Guinea will be on the left; for, as we talked last night, he made sure to tell us that they wear scary looking masks there.
And, with that pertinent information, I know you are waiting on the edge of your seats for the newest additions. I can only imagine that you are especially eager to find out which column each additional country will land in.
He says they will be forthcoming.
Oh children… how I love you and treasure this time with you. And, to be quite honest, I’d prefer some shorter days and longer years, please.
