Another successful family visit has come and gone. It was nice just to be able to relax and enjoy people without the pressure of Christmas celebrations. We weren’t totally housebound, either, which helps: we went swimming, tubing and bowling, we went out for dinner, we played in the snow on the one day there was any…and everyone seemed to have a good time. I really enjoyed the fact that the kids (or at least Justin) were old enough that we could do some stuff that was actually fun for everybody (i.e. waterslides and tubing). That’ll happen more and more as the boys get older and I’m really looking forward to it.
It’s back to routine this week, which makes me happy, and the sun is shining, which makes me even happier. Justin was almost quivering with excitement at going back to preschool, so that was good to see. Brayden didn’t nap at all yesterday and I think he’s starting to give it up (the horror!) but he’s down for a snooze right now, so I’ll take the break while I can get it.
Happy New Year everybody!
