Today's assignment: VIEW FROM THE FRONT DOOR.
The girls were at camp this week and today, The Man and I drove to the camp this morning in time for the closing chapel service and lunch. Oh, and to pick them up and bring them home!
It's funny ~ it didn't feel as weird this year without them at home as it did last year. Maybe because now we've done it before; last year it was a new thing for all of us. Or maybe it was because this year we didn't really do anything out of the ordinary; last year I had a big agenda (that I didn't really end up sticking to!) ~ big PLANS for a week with the house ALL to myself since The Man was still essentially living in the semi-truck all week long back in those days.
I don't know, but honestly, it didn't really feel very different without them at home. Quieter, yes. Less need for meals at specific times. It was nice to be able to work a little later, eat a little later, and just be able to stay sitting after supper was over WITHOUT having the feeling that I really SHOULD be getting more done...
But it is SO GOOD to have them home again!! I never realize how much I miss them until I see them again.
