On our way

We are leaving this morning on our long awaited, much needed and anticipated vacation. For the past week we have been having these conversations.. "Cubby, what do you want for dinner?" "Go on vacation for dinner?" and "Do they have homeschooling on vacation? Who will feed my sleeping buddies?" "Can we paint on vacation?" As I am taking a little break from the mad rush of packing, counting underwear, pants, blankies, knight shields (can't leave town without them) and sleeping buddies I am thinking how relaxing it would be to only have the stresses of 2 and 4 year olds right before a vacation. If the only planning I had to do was to make sure I had enough blue crayons and there would be mac and cheese where we are going. But instead I wait until the morning of to realize how much is left to do and then get on the computer instead. It makes it more of an adventure though, especially when I get there and realize I only brought my self shirts or no shoes. Lets just say packing practical items is not my strong point.
Now we count down the hours and then we are off. I have packed extra needles and yarn because of course I will finish the sweater I have on my needles right now. Even on vacation my hands can't be still.
Here we come lake, trees, fresh air, long bike rides, late dinners, nature walks, relaxation, adventure, mountains and treasured memories.
