Apparently Sea World in December is off the radar for most people. Because Greg and I nearly had the entire lovely place to ourselves. I think we went on Manta at least a dozen times (mostly in the front seat). Greg teased me later for bringing tuna in my backpack for lunch...
(I normally don't take pictures of my food, but what the hey! These were rare uninterrupted meals!!).
Lap swimming followed breakfast and then reading by the pool for a few hours. Naps after lunch. We went shopping nowhere in particular - just thrilled to be browsing without lots of little voices. A few choice meals from Trader Joe's. We had a rainy afternoon that felt wonderful! And at night we cooked dinner together while catching up on our favorite episodes of Arrow on Netflix.
I love being married!!

Andrew never finished his schooling and certainly never had any formal education. But I know this man loved and valued education. As I sit here today with Andrew's copy of Byron's Poetical Works in my hands, pages spotted with Andrew's hand written notes, I know he never stopped trying to advance the progression of his mind through self learning and lots of books. Indeed, if his daughters were any sign of the literary, political, theological discussions which took place in the Divers home, the educational environment must have been enticingly rich.

My cell phone started ringing in the middle of my morning meeting today...
(It's the school. Which kid is it? Did I miss something? Are they sick? Are they hurt?)
"Mrs. McKinnon, we're calling about your oldest son."
(My oldest son?? Sigh! I'll bet it was that stupid Trevor kid. Maybe we should tell him not to play soccer during recess anymore. Dang it, now I gotta think about consequences. How soon can I get out of this meeting?)
"Actually, we're calling to tell you that this month he's made the 200 Club."
"Oh... Um..." (What the heck is the 200 Club?)
"We wanted to call and tell you the good news."
"So this is good?"
"You mean... you're actually calling to tell me my child did something GOOD at school?"
