Those last couple days of a holiday go by so very quickly, don’t they? The weather has been perfect all week; long summer days and warm summer nights. Jack and Sarah played outside all day, only coming inside to rest. We didn’t bring any toys for them, we knew that the beach and my in-laws’ lush green horse property would be all the toys they needed. We were right.
Tomorrow we start the long drive home again. I’m excited and a little nervous about 2014. How much will it change? What will our days look like? I’ve made some plans, but they are very loose plans. It doesn’t feel like the start of a school year for me; I haven’t planned units. I like that. I hope I can keep this open sense of freedom going, this trust that Jack is learning all the time. But that is not to worry about now.
For now we have one more day left here. Enough time for one more trip to the beach.
