It's hard to believe that tomorrow means back to preschool, Tuesday means back to toddler tumbling class, and in general the weeks now revert back to our normal routine. Julia had a solid two weeks off from school for Christmas, and even though she's not in "real" school yet, just three-mornings-a-week nursery school, it really did feel like a long, lovely break, and I'm in no way itching for school to start back up again. We all had a great time over "vacation," both as a family of four during our trip to see family (except for the drive, of course) and over New Year's Eve/Day, and just me and the girls the rest of the time: hanging out, baking, sledding, singing Christmas carols, playing with new toys, watercolor-painting, staying in our pj's later than usual, going to various holiday events and gatherings. Last night we went to a little family-friendly cocktail party and we admired the tabletop creche and the tall short-needled Christmas tree, and decided to keep up our Christmas decorations for one more week. Because even though nursery school begins again tomorrow, we're not quite ready to say goodbye to the holidays in our house. What about yours?
