I just realized today that I am in a wonderful stage of life. The kids and I have no set agenda, so we can do whatever we want on a regular basis. Yesterday Tabitha wanted to go exploring, so we went to a nearby battlefield. The trail wasn't very long, but it was fun to be outdoors. Today we're going to spend time making a meal for a family who just had a baby. If they were in school or if I was homeschooling them, I wouldn't be able to do these things on a whim. I'd like to cherish these moments.
