Another First has come and gone. Today, out shopping, two different cashiers greeted the children and I with, "March Break starts today, eh kids?"
The first time it was said, my kids looked up with that half crooked querying gaze at me. I gently laughed and said, "We homeschool. We're taking March break in a few more weeks."
It happened again and I said the same thing.
I always think of the best thing to say just after the fact. So I'll stick this one in my back pocket for next time.
"It's March break, eh guys?"
"That's what they say... But it seems like they've been home for months already."
Another first come and gone. Now I'm prepared for next time.
