This Christmas break seemed so short. Too short
Precious Youngest took her last final December 18th and turned around the next day to go to the regional debate tournament. Classes resumed yesterday. That’s two weeks and change for Christmas break.
Precious Oldest also finished finals on the 18th, drove home, and turned around to go with her sister to regionals. Her classes start again late next week, but she’ll go back to campus this weekend as she has to work. A little bit longer break, but still…
Senior year of high school is stressful. The work load is intense and the college application process is grueling. Observing the college age kids of various friends it appears sophomore and junior years at university take their toll. This was certainly the case for Precious Oldest last semester. They were so ready for the break and now it’s over.
I’ve been cooking up favorite meals and trying to get as many hugs in as I can. Time is moving fast my friends. Too fast.
