Mental Health Day

I think they are necessary to anyone - young and old! Maddi was super tired today and since we had to get up early to walk the kids to the bus stop and Geoff left at the same time to walk to where his ride was picking him up, she was extra tired. It took us about 45 min. - to an hour to get the kids to the bus stop and back. Maddi rode her bike and I walked Lady. It was nice weather so that made it nice. She fell asleep about an hour before we needed to start walking to her bus stop. I didn't want to wake her up so I let her sleep and called her in to school. At our house we call them "mental health days". Everyone is allowed one per semester. Maddi hasn't had one since Christmas so I think she deserved it. She slept til 1pm and then we made popcorn and are having it with Diet Dr. Pepper while watching the movie "Little Rascals". I know might disagree with this but I find that sometimes we need a break from reality no matter what age we are. I'm sure teachers take mental health days too! Hoping to hear from the car shop soon!!

I am all for that! I think we all need one of those once in awhile. Hope everything works out with your van.
