We desperately were in need of a day of respite. Not just a day to get away from the books, but a day to get completely away from the house together. We couldn’t really swing being gone for more than a day right now, but we could do a “day trip”. Some friends from church (about 4 families) were going to be in Joshua Tree National Park on Thursday awaiting more families who were going to camp through the weekend. We decided to drive out Thursday morning a spend the day with our friends. It was a 3 hour drive out there. We visited for about 4-5 hours and then headed back home. It was a gorgeous day!
These are friends our kids have grown (are growing) up with. I LOVE that we all get opportunities like this to make memories!!
Now we’re ready to take on a week of standardized testing!!
