After having four children with me almost constantly for the summer, dropping two off at school certainly lightens the load. Two are just easier ~ they fit in a stroller better, they are easier to get into and out of the car, there is less complaining and bickering, the demands are just, well, lighter.
It is always fun to see how Betsy and Walker react to being just the two of them again. They play together well.
So what do we do while the big two are at school. Well let's see...
We've gone on leisurely runs ~ slowing once to chase a trail of water to see where it drained and then again to watch a digger.
Now don't get me wrong ~ when that school bell rings at 2:50 we are thrilled to see two happy faces running towards us at pick-up.
