It’s been a busy week for my daughter. It’s her Spring Break.
It began with a school-wide Fun Run on the Friday before. Having never run anything like that before, she was rather nervous. She wasn’t the only one. Her entire class, after walking out to the field where there was a tent for them for stretching and instructions, immediately shot off running. A few minutes later, order was restored to the Kindergarten universe. She ended up running far more laps then she expected.
The next day, she flew to Grandma’s, or at least to an airport near Grandma. She spent five days thrilling Grandma with everything she did. She had a pretty good time as well.
Upon her return, she had lessons in swimming, horse back riding, and guitar. She has become quite a good swimmer and, more important to us, water safe. Her horse back riding is a newer experience for her. Up on a horse, she simultaneously looks so little, yet quite comfortable. A day later she had her second guitar lesson. Still too soon to tell much, but early signs are positive.
Near the end of the week, one of her aunts came to town for Easter weekend. Like most of her extended family, her aunt spoils her with gifts and attention. A great time was had by all. Special events events included a visit to a strawberry farm to pick fresh berries. While the season is early, we still managed to bring home 15 pounds. This morning, we found out what the Easter Bunny brought during an Easter egg hunt in the front yard.
Tomorrow the routine of school returns. She’s had a great week, but is ready to return to her regular schedule. Routine or special occasion, she manages to enjoy almost everything she does. And that makes it all the more enjoyable for Mommy and Daddy.
