Spring Broken

You would think someone who homeschooled for five years would savor the opportunity to share a long week with her now-schooled children. But you'd be thinking wrong. It's been a very long spring break. I think my impatience is augmented by the long illness that invaded my house. I let them watch TV while they were sick and now they think they can turn it on anytime they'd like. The noise makes me cringe.

Yesterday and today brought lovely weather to Mission, Kansas. The kids biked a lot. Emily even persuaded me to replace the bad innertube on my bike so she could ride it -- she's outgrown yet another bike. Funny thing is, while I was at cycling class this morning, I envisioned repairing that very tire and dragging my bike to Olathe so I could learn to bike in the wild with Mrs. Diggs. The first words out of Emily's mouth when I got home were a request to buy the tube. She's always had a strong psychic ability. . .but don't tell her that.

I should hit the sack. I'm going to cycle tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. This will be my first attempt at back-to-back days. Hope my behind doesn't hurt too much afterward. . .hope my legs can walk me out of there.
