My boys had an extended holiday break due to the return of very cold temperatures. A few cancellations + two-hour delays were a nice way to ease into the pattern of school mornings again.
I did love the break. I needed it so much. We did a puzzle (my dad mostly), enjoyed an extended visit from my Grandma Bell (who is adorable when she wins bingo), binged on Netflix (finally watched Stranger Things), ate lots of Christmas cookies & pizzelles (I’m not sorry), built a gingerbread house for dinosaurs (why not?), and played in the snow (of course).
I also slept again, which was a favorable achievement.
Oh my, and I attended my favorite five minutes of an orchestra performance to watch my favorite cello player.
Winter is here... and I don’t even mind.
