Finally, I have accepted that I can have great intentions for time well-spent, but unless I put it on the calendar, then the calendar will overrun my intentions. Case in point: family days. We have been saying we were going to set aside one Saturday a month for family time since Lee was born, but we only do it about three or four times a year. Not in 2012. They are on the calendar, and we will be busy!
Our first trip was to see the model trains exhibit at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History. I have to be honest to all of you whose boys (and girls) love trains - this is not much of an exhibit. But we had some favorite parts, for sure:
Lee wasn't even sure we were still there, he had been so engrossed in the train table.
KW listened intently to the bluegrass band.
Deconstructing the train in the playroom and building tunnels.
