“Dora” Day

Jane here…

Ahh…  (Content sigh…)  We just had a lovely visit from the grandparents, which Esmé (and the rest of us) enjoyed very much.

And now I’m thinking we can kick out of summer gear and get back on track with “life.”

Except I just realized we have a camping trip to the coast this weekend, and then I’ve got an extra day of work scheduled next week.

So maybe I shouldn’t plan to get back on track just yet.

But I DO think a Dora day may be in order for Miss Esmé tomorrow while I catch up on virtual and real life before the merry-go-round starts again on Thursday. 

(And I’ll write up one of those 4am to 11pm schedules for myself as I try to figure out the logistics of cramming everything into a 24-hour day.  Which will make me feel organized and on top of things for about 24 hours – at which time I’ll remember that LIFE is all about those unplanned sweet moments that take us off schedule.)

Here’s to a day of Swiper and Map and Backpack with some Bob & Larry thrown in for good measure.  Hope the rest of you are having a fabulous summer!

Jane, this sounds like me now after several months! We've been having a lot of those sweet moments of life for quite a while now, and while I LOVE them, part of me is ready for some semblance of order, which I'm working on this week before it gets thrown to the wind (or the sky) as we fly back to the States in about 5 weeks. I'm working on catching up on all my fav blogging friends, and you and pretty Esme are on that list, too! Hope you both enjoy your Dora Day. (Ours will include a good dose of Kermit, I believe). :)
