today marks day one of nine (!) days off for omar.
lazier mornings with extra coffee have been scheduled.
tomorrow we head to miami for a couple of days. i miss that place. more so than i ever thought i would. we went down to south beach a few nights ago to meet up with friends, and as we neared the city omar took the hov lane that takes you up over the interstate giving you as dramatic a first glimpse of the skyline as you can achieve in flat florida. even though that route adds a few miles to get to family, i’m now a firm believer that that is the only way to enter the city. so if you are driving down that way and don’t have the required 2+ persons for the hov lane, be a rebel.
a stack of maternity clothes waits to be made into something. a quilt/blanket using the “rooster technique” perhaps?
dinners on the beach are on the agenda.
and just so we keep one foot back in the world of reality, we’ll start up a bit of school with the boys. i’m trying to capitalize on elisha’s new found interest in letters and their sounds.
