Not Going to School Day

Zoe turned five a few weeks ago. She can go to school this year.

Well, technically she doesn’t have to go until next year, when she turns six.

Well, even more technically, she doesn’t have to go to school at all.

So… This is her very first day of not going to school.

Tra la!

I gotta tell you… I have smiled all day.

It is a sublime day of sunshine and light winds.

A good day to begin a journey.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.

Indeed, Mr Tolkien. Indeed.

We spend the whole day in the water.

A couple of hours at the pool, then the afternoon at the beach.

A Baptism of sorts?

Nup. Simply, a day in the water.
