Our daughter, Charlie, is in her first year of pre-school, and with it comes school holidays - something we were not accustomed to at her in-home daycare she attended the two years prior. It dawned on us (admittedly a little late in the game), that Charlie had most of this week off of school, so we packed up the car and drove to Vermont for the week .
Despite it being the first week of spring, it is still quite cold and wintry up here. The evaporator is running for maple syrup making, the pond is frozen every morning, and the fireplace is constantly full of logs. I love it up here, but the cold always takes me a day or two to get used to. How quickly I forget the number of layers required just to leave the house!
