Me & my boys
Well, it was one of those stretches that just finished up. I was in a somewhat self-imposed blogging exile. Bridgette was out of town for 4.5 days and I stayed home and took "vacation" with the boys. During my "vacation" - I officiated 2 weddings, 1 funeral and participated in VBS & Sunday worship. So, it was about as much of a vacation as any day in the office ever is - probably even less so. I certainly found more respect for what Bridgette does, and even more, I couldn't imagine being a single parent. Not that I couldn't handle it, or couldn't do what Bridgette does on a daily basis. But I couldn't imagine doing it alone, on top of a fulltime job to pay the bills.
In the midst of crazy schedules & a sick boy (which meant I got much less sleep than I would've liked, we did find some time to have fun. But I learned a valuable lesson. When Bridgette goes away in September, leaving me with the boys again - I'm going away too! I'm taking the boys to Canada for the weekend...
