I’ll admit I was a bit of a romantic when I booked our trip to California for three weeks.
I’d just read this article about the Crafton family who spent seven years at sea, and I’d just watched these videos of friends who hiked the Wonderland Trail for twelve days with their four young children.
Both talked about how their experiences brought them closer together as a family, and it made me cocky.
I was all, YEAH! LET’S DO THIS THING!
But three days in to the trip I was reminded that CLEARLY I am not called to homeschool.
We had a great time, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. But we are home now, and thankful to be here.
I think Ruthie spoke for both of us when she exclaimed on the flight home: “I’M SO EXCITED TO GO TO SCHOOL TOMORROW!”
