This past week has been a stressful week, not bad, just getting everything ready for back to school at the College. Late yesterday had lots of ups and downs. We all decided to fill up our book bags and go to Panera Bread for a light supper and some heavy reading time together. It was just what we needed. We sat in a room where another party was playing Rummikub. That was fun to watch, too. I think it was good for all of us to be together away from phones and computers. I am loving the new book we have chosen for the American Revolution course. DH brought his Bible and a Hardy Boys mystery (just because we are in our 50's doesn't mean we don't still love Frank, Joe, Nancy and Bess!) DH2 is reading C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity --I was pleased to hear him say this was one of his favorite books ever. DD is really enjoying Karen Kingsbury these days, but she had something else with her last night. DS1 is reading a book about Hong Kong (he is Mr. Non-Fiction). We all had such a good time just being together. I told DH this morning as he went off to Registration and Move-In for new students at the College that I am grateful, so grateful, that our kids are still at home with us. The boys are both in College now, but seem very content to be here. They will find their own way with their own families, but I cherish every moment we have them now.
