I’m writing over at The Glorious Table today. Here’s a preview:
Virginia was hit hard with snow this year. Our boys, ages ten and a half and nine, have had two extended winter breaks from school—the normal Christmas break and then an additional extended break, when my nerves were a little raw one morning as we entered the Y.
Our conversation went like this:
“Elijah, watch the clock today. I want you out of the pool by 10:30. I don’t want to have to pull you out.”
“Okay, so you want us out of the pool, dressed, and waiting on the couches for you at 10:30?”
“No, I said get out of the water at 10:30.”
