Elijah's spring break was last week, and I took a break from blogging. We had a fun week together, although it started off with him having the stomach bug that Isaac had a couple weeks ago. We did several fun things-- we met up with a few local families from Gentle Christian Mothers, took a walk at the park with a friend and her daughter, visited another friend's house, took family trips to the Tennessee Aquarium and the Greenway, and got some new fish and a frog for our fish tank.
But while we did some fun things during spring break, that's not what made it so special to me. I really enjoyed getting some time to relax and connect with Elijah. Truth be told, I miss him when he's at school, and school days feel so hectic and busy. It feels like we're all going in different directions, trying to do everything that needs to be done before bedtime, just so we can get up the next day and do it all over again. But during his break, we had plenty of time to relax and talk and just be together as a family.
School started back today. I'm counting down the weeks until summer break.
