The kids looked forward to every single day because there was something fun (or maybe 2!) to engage in. 
For the last few weeks or so, I've been thinking of pulling back here some to reignite some of the interests that I like to write about. I've felt pretty uninspired, but I think it's just because in my personal life has been full. Good, but full, with choosin…
