Day 15 – Month 15:
By late July, early August we had settled into our summer routine. Darcy was still in Pre-K and Benny was Sandy’s a few days a week. We had had a very busy summer, like all of them seem to be.
At the end of July, Tara and I participated in the SGK 3 Day walk. The boys were left to fend for themselves with the four kids and trying to following us on the route. Tara and I had an amazing time on the walk enjoying the silence and the ability to carry on a fully uninterrupted conversation. The best part of the weekend is when the boys and kids met up with us on the Boston Common and walked with us for a bit. Benny was our little cheerleader!
In the middle of August we were able to escape up to Vermont for a few days to a friends house. We left on a Thursday afternoon and figured that the kids would fall asleep on the ride up. Bad idea. Benny resisted almost the whole way. By the time we got up there, set up the pack and play, he was all disjointed and wouldn’t go down. After an hour of rocking and laying with him, I finally brought him to bed with Parker and I. At this point it was nearly 1 AM. He was rolling around, talking to us, touching us and just being his crazy self. At one point he stood up and started dancing. Parker and I just looked at each other and laughed. What to do with this crazy child??
We visited the Stowe car show, went out to eat and played outside with the kids for hours. It was a great family vacation and one that I’m so thankful for.
