For some reason, it makes us laugh and laugh, but Joe doesn't think it's quite as funny as we do. He is not fun.
We had a great weekend as a family. Em was off in the state capital with Youth In Government--an event that involves 800 high school students who learn the law-making process while sitting in the actual seats of our elected officials. It's quite the event and experience. We went along to see her in action--along with driving Col back to campus after spring break. He just happens to go to school in Springfield as well--which worked out well.
Colin and I spent the day at the Museum of Science and Industry on Friday--mainly at the MythBusters display. It was fun going just he and I, and we took the time to play with every interactive display there was. I like to take a day with Colin alone, it just gives us time to talk. Or not. It's just good to be with him because I really miss him when he's at school.
I like to take photos of our times together--he does not:
I think he's having a blast, don't you?
It was a nice end to having Colin home for the week--the four of us traveling out of town and hanging out. I really like when we do this lately because I know these days are quickly ending. I grasp at every moment of family time I can, while being careful of not clutching too hard. I'm lucky the kids still want to hang out, but I also appreciate that they have their own things to do and I don't make these times mandatory. I think the more we laugh, the more they want to be and laugh with us.
And that includes blowing Joe up if we have to.
