Ringing in the new

A small road trip with nine teenagers to see a concert.

Being cast in the play in the part she really wanted.

Friends trying to send a paper lantern off into the night but being foiled by little boys swinging sticks like swords. Sending wishes, hopes and plans up anyway.

Sitting on the frozen, grassy hill across from the "Corner" waiting for the ball to drop.

Making bread bowls.

Bread bowls for our annual New Year's Day tradition.  That happened on January 2nd instead.

Our break was full of baking, crafting, staying in our pajamas all day, watching movies and lazing around.

Remembering it all had me a little sad it was over as I drove them to school this morning.

Too bad we have to get back into a "normal" routine. The down time during the holidays was fabulous!
