You may have noticed I’ve been on something of a hiatus since our camping season ended. September was spent preparing me for the start of kindergarten. The five year old, you understand has taken to school like a duck to water – the adjustment has been mostly on my part. Here in Seattle kindergarteners attend a full day 9:30-3:30. It leaves a paltry amount of time after school for hanging out. Still, it makes me remember why spending time together when we can is so important.
