Here's a pic of my kids from five days ago in New York:
And here's a snapshot of what they have doing the past two days in Orlando and now in Naples, Florida:
While they did have a blast in the snow for a couple hours last week...
Still, they tragically hadn't been to a park in almost the past two months.
While Long Island has numerous large, beautiful, and well-funded parks I've been very disappointed with them on another front. There simply are NO KIDS there for mine to play with, EVER.
If I was one of those LOSER *likers* on Headbook...
My wall would read "CaptiousNut likes Snowbirding*!
And so do my kids.
We spent New Year's Eve last week with two other neighborhood couples and their children
Both of them have *1st graders* - girls the same age as the Prince AND also a younger child right behind like our Princess.
And both of these couples, I think, have already been captivated by the idea and evidence of us homeschooling our children. The endless stream of questions they they fire at me and my wife suggest much more than shallow curiosity. I can literally see the wheels turning in the brains during these conversations - most especially this past week over a New Year's Eve standing rib roast when we revealed that we were packing the car up for Florida.
Twice one of the guys incredulously asked me later that evening, "You're really going down for a whole month?"
Indeed I was....actually for a little longer!
