After the never ending winter many of us experienced in Pixieland, one would think I would be be more appreciative of the telltale signs of spring. However, Tween Son pointed out that he has less than one month of school left and that means the Season of All Whines is nearly upon many of us who still have school aged children at home.
AW: Tween Son and Teen Daughter have several sleepaway programs that they will attend.
W: Only one activity overlaps.
AW/W: Teen Daughter is old enough to be junior staff at the camp she and her brother have attended for years. The AW is because I am proud she was selected and the W is on behalf of Tween Son.
AW: They are really excited about their summer plans and we are taking a nice family vacation with our extended family by choice (not birth) to a quiet lakeshore town once again.
Plus, in non-parenting related anti-whines: Hooray for Minnesota today!
What's new in your corner?
Reminder: Next up at the Wednesday Book Club: 5/22/13 - Sandcastle Girls, by Chris Bohjalian (hosted by Esperanza). I really want to read this book!
