Guys, I had great plans for my two week vacation to Cape Cod! On the schedule was blogging three times a week, planning out the next month of posts, researching the homework debate and the education method articles I started, and making a social media plan. Lofty goals and I was excited to start on them.

But then we got here. And I realized that this is finally my chance to spend time with my two kids. At 8 and 4.5, they are changing so much, so quickly. They go to school full time, they are involved in an increasing number of activities, and I work full time.  Time to just be with them is rare. We squeeze conversations into car rides and playing together is often put off so I can make dinner or vacuum the floor.

Though I love writing, I am taking this chance to play with my kids, to cuddle with them, and listen to their stories about their lives, to learn what they find funny right now. I’m delighting in my daughter’s  creativity and my son’s energy. The blog will still be here when I get home.
