Beth and the kids took off for Kentucky yesterday, so I am flying solo this week. After four months of intense activity, the prospect of a quiet house was a nice change of pace. However, it was particularly hard to see them leave because the kids are at such a fun age. I can see that my efforts to spend more time with my six year old Luke is making a positive difference in him, so I hated to stop that momentum. But when I heard he climbed the small mountain behind Beth's childhood home today with his older cousin, I knew he was in the right place to be for his Spring Break. The picture above is a few months old, but its the look I imagine he had when he reached the top.

The last few weeks have been some of the most interesting and exciting days of my life. Unfortunately, its during that time that I tend to abandon things like my journal and blogs. Yesterday, I worked official work hours on a Monday. For the last three years I have been pretty good about avoiding the office on Monday. Even though this is part of my regiment, I must admit that working on Monday helped me get a great start to the week - I feel way ahead of the curve. I will consider moving my day off to Thursday or Friday.
