Pardon our absence last week.
Both Baby Boy and I were feeling too stressed to post. In fact, Mom #2 felt so bad for both of us that we resorted to an old Homeschooling trick . . . we set off for an impromptu vacation right in the middle of the semester. Road Trip!!!
Mom #2 dusted off the old Rand McNally and we started driving north until we ended up in the deserted hills of New Mexico. We'd never been there before so we spent a lot of time enjoying nature walks with Baby Doggy trying to catch all the road runners and jack rabbits. We also enjoyed looking at the beautiful night sky full of stars that are usually washed out by the light pollution in larger cities. Wow! We didn't know what we'd been missing.
We did enjoy some touristy things as well, like the Carlsbad Caverns. It was pretty amazing seeing a whole entire world 800 feet below the surface we look at every day. We spent an entire day meandering up and down the caverns and really enjoying the cool 56 degree weather since the sun was scorching hot on the outside, LOL.
Now we're relaxed, refreshed, and ready to tackle the second half of the semester!
What do you do to de-stress?
Until next time . . .
