Fall Break


Today marks the start of Emma's Fall Break. With Emma in a different school district than Maddie, it's difficult to schedule trips but makes for some great time spent alone with each girl. Of course to Maddie that meant sleeping in and hanging out with her friends. Not really good quality bonding. But for Emma that means Mommy/Emma days. Mommy/Emma days are one of Emma's favorite things in this world since she was tiny. She cherishes her time alone with me. I take advantage of it because I know, this too shall pass. This week we will be sleeping in, playing games, reading, cooking, antiquing, watching movies and playing in the leaves. I know you think this sounds like my idea of a good time but you will be surprised to learn that it is actually Emma's idea of a good time too. Sigh. I am such a lucky woman.

    Sounds like a fantastic Fall break.

    You better get rested up, though... ;)

  3. You ARE lucky. Sounds like a perfect week!

    My daughter was sick the other day and had to come home from school early. We watched 'Roman Holiday' together. It was fun. AND she's almost 15. She still likes to hang out, so that's nice.

  5. Your post reminds me of a Christmas break spent with my youngest daughter baking cookies and watching movies together. She is now grown with a little one of her own.

    I hope you and Emma have a wonderful time together.

  14. That sounds heavenly! We don't have a fall break here in my part of California. I love to hear about different traditions in other parts of the country. Enjoy your time. I need to plan that with my Baby Bee. Thanks for sharing.
