I let Jane Anne stay home from school one day last week. She wasn’t sick (or even “under the weather” as I might have told the attendance clerk), but she was tired and needed a break. Don’t get me wrong, she loves school and rarely complains. But there are just days she needs a break. Needs time to do nothing on a schedule. Needs to hang out with her sister. We slept in, read in bed for a good bit of the morning, played Yatzee and Uno, pulled out a huge number of toys, dressed up, and just generally had fun. It was a perfect day.
