Back on Tuesday, was it, that Adam was gone basically ALL DAY...he also forgot to put on his shoes that day, and wore his bedroom slippers (they're rather like moccasins) all day long. Poor fella.
But now, ahhhh, cross-country is OVER for the season. Everyone cheer!
Philip is working, and then will go to Scarowinds, a "halloween" version of the nearest theme park.
Anna is at Culinary Club at school with a friend, who will come home with her and spend the night here.
Peter is home but will be leaving soon to go to a movie with friends from school.
Julia is just home. Phew!
Phlip, Anna, Peter and Anna's friend will leave at about 8:15 with our church youth group to go hiking in the mountains all day long.
Julia will go with friends to a movie Sat. afternoon, and then will spend the night with them, returning Sunday AM.
I think this is what happens when you actually live in one location long enough for your kids to make friends. We've never actually done that before, very successfully.
All that to say, Adam and I may have some time alone, in the midst of the flurry of departing and arriving children.
