Oh holidays why I do believe you did us right this year. I can’t place a finger on where the ease came from. There was the obvious factor in which we were all healthy and well for its duration, there was sweet family, tradition, sunshine, and lots of extra adults on hand to divide and conquer all the little ones. Oh, there was fighting, so much fighting, but the moments of exasperation were thankfully always followed by a partner who can take over when the going got tough. It was so nice to have a long break with all six of us here. Sledding and hikes, projects and movies… it was just what we needed.
On another note, we just discovered Rowan quite clearly has a photographic memory! He can “see” baseball cards in his mind and relays every, single statistic with precision. Strange but true… Does anyone have any experience with such a thing?
