We spent today finishing the Christmas decorations, helping Cal pack and setting up the last of the tv stands. By the end of the day the house looked wonderful and we even got in a few rounds of Mario Kart. The sad part was getting Cal out the door. We all enjoyed having him home and look forward to him coming back at Christmas break. He was dreading the drive with all of the construction, but made pretty good time. The weeks will go by quickly, but they will be challenging ones for him.
Meg told me today that she was not looking forward to going back. I don’t blame her. We have a strange winter break this year as we go to school until the 22nd and get out on a Wednesday. We then go back on a Thursday. Cameron will be out three full days before we are. It will be a tough 18 days to keep students motivated, but it too shall go by quickly. At least now we can play Mario on the big screen to help pass the time.
