We started M's break with a night out for Mexican...where we drank and laughed equally--while gorging on chips and salsa.
We went to the worst winery! I couldn't refrain as I sampled the reds, from letting the word "horrid" whisper out of my mouth. We settled on the only drinkable wine--a rather sweet white. The more we drank the more we regretted paying $17 for something that was more of a $6 bottle. Anytime someone tries to create a label by blending their cat's picture with Van Gough's Starry Night you know it's not gonna be good!
As usual we made the best of it--sisters together
After the winery we all went back to D's room where the silliness continued
While D has no plans except to lay on the couch, watch TV, have hourly feedings, and take a voice lesson. M kept herself quite busy. M was busy working on her practicum, and was lucky to return to the place that sparked her interest in both business and education: her Alma Mater.
It wasn't that long ago that M and her favorite teacher looked like this. Rocking twin day with there matching curly hair, breast cancer awareness shirts and animal print shoes. Teacher and student.
Flash forward a few years and they look like this--mentor and wanna-be-teacher.
They sport different hair styles and glasses, both with a shared passion for business education.
Then M took to the front of the classroom and taught the students about investing early.
When the two weeks were all said and done, we all return to school. To which I say-- let the count down to the end begin!
