What has been more fun to watch, is the joy that Drew has been showing for the last few days. It has been a few years since we have been away and I guess for a twelve year old kid, that could be like FOREVER! Even DJ, our nearly 17 year old, brooding teen, who rarely shows any emotion lately, is showing some delight in the fact that we are leaving soon.
Drew went to the attic last night and dragged down the suitcases. He even cleaned his room – an undertaking I have been begging and pleading with him to do for weeks now! He came downstairs to tell us that he has all of his outfits planned out and even decided to bring his, “nice button down shirt” to wear on Easter with a bow-tie! Some days I really feel like I don’t know this kid! Outfits?!?! Most days, we are lucky if we can get him to choose a clean shirt out of his pile of laundry on his floor each morning.
We are in the final countdown. One more day of school. Two more “sleeps” (as Drew as been calling it,) and we are off! To everyone off on a Spring Break adventure, and to all of you taking a “staycation” this year, have fun and enjoy every moment of it. They are so few and far between we have to cherish them as we get them!
