I could get used to this more low-key schedule. It is so nice knowing there is nowhere we have to be at any given point in time. Helping things is the weather. It has been absolutely gorgeous. We have had the windows open all week, enjoying the breezes and nature soundtrack that is our yard. Looking at the forecast, it won’t even break into the upper 80s this week, so we can continue to enjoy the fresh air and birdsong. There is nothing quite like it for a relaxation method.
Holly officially graduated eighth grade this week and started her summer break on Friday. She celebrated by heading over to a friend’s house for a sleepover, something she has not been able to do all winter or spring. She is in the process of making a summer bucket list filled with day trips she would like to do this summer, which is the least we can do for her considering she did not have any time to play during the school year. I look forward to seeing what makes the list.
Connor is enjoying his internship and started his first of three projects on which he will be working. I have enjoyed his first glimpse of the business world, as his observations make me laugh. His indignation at things that are commonplace for office workers is, quite frankly, adorable. I am so glad he is getting this opportunity because it will lessen the culture shock when he gets out there on his own. Plus, we can guide him through the idiosyncrasies of office politics versus him making a faux pas later.
Jim is heading out for a business trip this week, so it will be the kids and me. It will be interesting to see how Connor fares without Dad to drive him to and from work every day. He normally sleeps during those trips, but now he has to drive himself. It should be interesting!
Otherwise, it is all quiet here. We have one more week of no dance to enjoy. Great weather. No obligations. This is about as good as it gets.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and an even better week to come. I will see you here next week!
