What Princess did without me on Sunday

I do not often get a day off without my daughter.
I don't often want one.This week I needed one.
My friend called and asked me to go with her
to a craft show while our husbands played with the kids at her house.
It was perfect.We strolled around at a leisurely pace, bought an "iced crock server"
from these people at Country Herbs.
Stopped off at a couple of other stores on the way home, including the food store for
something to toss on the grill for dinner. We ate dinner, tried out a new dip in the crock she bought,
and had a Margarita or two.The kids had been swimming in a neighbors pool with their boys
and were watching a movie inside to cool off from the heat of the day when we got home.After dinner,
they played in the sprinkler and had ice cream before we drove home at bed time.
Fortunately I left my camera with Farmer Dad before I left.Just so you don't think
I'm leaving it off completely,
I'll post my books for the week on Tuesday.

I totally agree that I don't often want a day away from my kids. Many women don't seem to understand that. It's good to see that I'm not completely abnormal :)

Well,I think if we stick together,I may be able to claim that I am "not completely abnormal", but I sure don't pass for "normal" around here.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
