Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
My kids are home and life is returning to the normal chaos I'm used to! They had a good flight home. No delays or anything. We all slept yesterday...some longer than others. The rest of the day was unpacking, giving/receiving gifts, hanging out, and getting this week's busy schedule decided on. Both kids have nice tans. DD says ds can go all he wants, she's not going again, LOL. She felt like 2 weeks was a long time to not sleep in her own bed, and to not be around me. But, she's glad she went and she did have fun, and she was very sad to leave their Navajo guide friend (they called each other "grandfather" and "granddaughter" in Navajo upon parting). She did come home with some healthier resolves. It seems that she realized that she actually did feel better because she was very active almost every day. With that in mind, we went for a walk together last night (two walks for me because I went for one while she was still asleep, not knowing she'd want to go for one also!)
Today starts the busy-ness of the week. She has to go to one of the high schools to attend a pre-session with an attorney in order to participate in Law Day on Wednesday. They have to learn courtroom protocol, of course...since it's at a civic auditorium, not an actual courtroom. Plus, they need to understand the back story of the case and how/why it has come to be heard at the state supreme court level. She's understandably nervous about just showing up to a class full of people she (probably) doesn't know, for an hour, but I don't think that many homeschoolers signed up to participate, so they didn't set up a separate session just for us. Tonight she has choir rehearsal, and then gets to hang out with her friend as usual until I am done at orchestra. Sadly, we've just found out that the friend is moving back to California this summer Sad, because it'll mean that dd is the only high schooler who attends church regularly (the rest are hit-and-miss because they attend non-local schools, so they may be home only once a month or even less frequently).
