there is a much needed vacation in our future. train trip for boys. road trip for girls. there will be beach visits and zoo visits. i will love my kiddos by being the initiator of games of candyland. we’ll pull out all the instruments instead of saying “later” and play and sing, even if it only lasts 8 minutes. we’ll bake cookies, make lemon curd, and drink lots of iced coffee by the pool.
