It's Spring Break







(pictures courtesy of http://portlandground.com)
My daughter's house if full. I am in one bedroom, she and her roommate each have one, and the living room is full. It's SPRING BREAK! You remember, when it was time to kill some brain cells that you just might have made over the last term, and hit the road, Jack. The three girls staying here are already on break (from UNR) and my daughter will be leaving, after finals on Tuesday, for Costa Rica. Not a bad life, eh?

I, on the other hand, have heard maybe a wee too much bluegrass, at ear-splitting levels, and sharing one bathroom has been a bit of a trick. But enjoying them, I am. How can you not? They're young, happy, excited about the possibilities of something as wonderful and fleeting as Spring Break.

Isn't it amazing how each generation is so different! I always notice how much more energy my sons have, than me. I'm happy you are enjoying being with them and sharing their exuberance.
Blessings, Star

Love the van.

We usually went over the border from San Diego to Ensenada or Rosarita for Spring Break. Kill brain cells indeed! I have a very funny story about one trip but will save for a post.

My son just left yesterday after being home for spring break week. It was so nice to have him around, although he's such a night owl, I felt like I didn't see much of him!

Is that second picture of a location on Hawthorne Street? And ONLY in the Pacific Northwest could you still find VW vans. Wow.

Have fun. When you get home it'll be that much nicer!
