Man, it's a tough transition. The end of winter break when all that's left is decorations to put away and a pile of thank you notes to write. When alarms ring again in the morning and schedules resume.
In winter, we have lots of dance parties. We make art and turn on all the lights. We welcome all the small achievements that a day can bring. Even, especially, the tiny ones. We get stacks of new books from the library, we invite friends over to play. Somehow the same old toys seem better with a dear companion to help enjoy them.
