I’m thankful for "a day off," even if it’s not for real.
Thursday night, David declared that I could "take the day off" on Friday. So I did – sort of. I stayed in bed until noon while the big kids kept an eye on Chris, and then when I got up, they all went outside to play in the snow. They came in for lunch and then headed back out for an hour (Chris napped after lunch) while I was able to get some work done.
It wasn’t what I had planned for our homeschool week, but I am thankful for "a day off."
