Nick is back from his workshop, just overflowing with ideas and hugs from the girls who are used to Mom being away but rarely Dad. This was a great opportunity for him, some fun girl time for us, but now we need to spend some time regrouping as a family!
If my blogs get a bit sporadic or far and few between over the next week or so, know that the dragon is simply soaking up a bit of summer sunshine, flaming the weeds in her garden, wiggling her claws in grass or sand and trying to squeeze in a bit of relaxation and family time between the frantic illustrating and stitching. I also need to catch up on the sleep that I missed by not sleeping well while Nick was away.
The funny thing about spending time apart is that it makes you appreciate each other more when you get back together. I feel the same way when I am away from my kids for a bit too. Maybe we all need a little break from things sometimes to keep us from taking anything for granted!
