This picture is from March, 2010, at the Orange Lake Resort in Orlando, Florida.
If you can believe me that by the end of the day, the kids (and I) are exhausted! The ride home, in the dark seems longer than on the way home, in the dark!
Tonight, Aimee helped watch the kids, took Macie to soccer practice, and then took them to McDonald's afterwords for supper.
I went a different route home, after I picked up the kids from McDonald's, and this totally threw them off. First because they know every landmark between here and home, and because they were really tired!
I always get the famous question, "Where are we going"
After that question, I answered, "Interstate" Ryan asked "Are we going to Florida???" Seriously! "I will take you to Florida, just not tonight!"
MM piped in and said, "Mom you are not allowed on the interstate without dad, you will get lost!"
"Macie, dear, how do you get to gymnastics?? By Interstate, in Mom's Truck!!"
Ryan told me, "Mom, you get ticket if you are speeding." No, Ryan, that wouldn't be me.
The ideas that run through their head! And when we got off the Interstate at the next exit, everything was familiar to them again, even in the dark.
"Oh, how did we get here!" Ryan started in on his own questions, and Macie told him, "I can't close my eyes when you are talking! "
Things were quiet until we got home, Macie was tired after soccer practice.
