I can't tell you how happy I was when we heard school didn't start again until tomorrow. We have left the house as a family three times in the last seventeen days. We are tired from too much rest, too much food and too much wine. Everyone has finished a book. We've played with all the new stuff and most of the old stuff, too. We hibernate this way every year. We were ready to rise to the challenge of the first Monday of the year today, but it turns out we didn't need to. What a relief. We'll try again in the morning.
This morning, instead of packing a lunch we were eating tamales and playing with Fashion Plates. Sweet.
