We are headed out tomorrow! Shemiah is going to be working at Glorieta this summer taking care of other people's kids. It'll be good for her. Shaianne is going to a camp with Brittney in the Carolinas for a couple of weeks. D'Shon and I won't know what to do with only 2 kids at home. But I'm sure we will cope.
But then again, by then Shaylyn will have finished The Lord of the Rings - she will have lots more questions than answers. Guess she might have to read The Silmarillion, or Unfinished Tales, or The Tolkien Reader or something else..... Who knows, maybe she will have to experience C.S. Lewis more deeply (beyond Aslan and company).
Maybe I can find the Grail on this trip - it's been awhile since I've experienced coffee shop coffee - perhaps a morning or 2 smelling coffee would be appropriate with a couple of good books.
