We leave for Nicaragua in one month, which seems so close and yet still so far off. I'm coping by reminiscing about Puerto Rico.
It's been a hard school year. D's program is really demanding. He's risen to the challenge, and coped with the stress and workload much better than I have.
We promised ourselves we'd take a big, fun trip once it was over. Two weeks and counting until school is officially out for summer. Two weeks after that, Nicaragua!
Summer brings its own set of challenges, including a scary qualifying exam in August that determines if students are ready for the second year of schoolwork and research. I know D's up for it. I'm just not sure that I am.
Luckily, we don't have to deal with that until after we get back. Until then, I'm taking it one day at a time.
