End of School Year!

I can't believe we're at the end of another school year. Joe and Flower are home for the summer and I'm super excited to have them! I know that they'd have been out of school if we were back in the states, but the international school they attend schedules a week-long break about every six weeks (go visit Europe!) ... which means we're in school until the end of June.

Of course, we have taken advantage of those extended breaks and enjoyed traveling and spending time together. That doesn't give us a free pass on taking care of the day-to-day chores of life nor can we abdocate our responsibilities. I guess, it's all about finding balance and being ok with your life.

Today was the end-of-the-school-year picnic - everyone invited. We took my dad, enjoyed some hotdogs/hamburgers, and got to listen to the student garage band (it's an after-school activity for anyone who wants to join). Fun times!

Marking the seasons of life with kids you love is where it's at.

  1. I like that schedule... 6 weeks on one week off. Kind of wish we did it that way here!
