the last week of school was insane. so insane that my insomnia reared it's ugly head. and went on, night after night, even into our week away at the beach. that's how i know things are out of control in my head and heart. it wasn't fun.
the night before the last day of school, we went for a walk after a storm. just me and the kids. i don't know why, but it was such a sweet time!
we made it work. it was tight! pat and i on one bed, rebekah, joshua and bailey slept the "wrong" way on the other bed. lincoln and sawyer on the floor on a blanket. and levi on a chair in the corner with bath towels - ha! we didn't think to bring sleeping bags - whooops!
i had heard that for every Frosty bought that weekend, $.50 went to foster care in the US, so even though we were trying to spend $0 on food on the road, we bought us all Frosty's...for a good cause and all!
and began THE most amazing week of vacation as a family!
