Claire is out of school for two weeks for winter break, and Molly’s school closes early, at 4:30 instead of 6:00, around the holidays. So have been getting back home with the girls before 5:00, over an hour before a normal week day. This extra hour makes a huge difference! We cook together, play, or just hang out. The normal weekday involves nothing but rushing to get dinner on the table and then get right to bed.
Molly and Claire are really enjoying the extra time. They have so much fun just goofing off with each other. I caught a little video clip of one of their games, a kind and gentle dragging game. Originally Claire and Molly wanted to drag Molly by her neck, but they took my advice and adjusted to the torsop-based approach as shown here.
