fear of paradise

We are staying home for Christmas.   It is always that way since blog-Stedman doesn’t usually get the day off let alone the weekend.

We make it work.

We have been looking casually at places we could visit in the spring after the boys get out of school…



Lake Tahoe.

It has been a lot of dreaming and very little concrete planning.   I hadn’t even realized the boys had overheard any of our discussions until I was helping Rhett(5) with his bath the other night.

Mom, I am really scared.

Why are you scared?

I don’t want to go to Hawaii.

Why?   Hawaii is beautiful!

I don’t want to get stuck in lava from a volcano.

We would never travel where there was a dangerous volcano!

Are you sure?

Yes, we would be safe from volcanoes.

I am still afraid of Hawaii.
