I spent a week in Salem recently with my granddaughter. During that time my biggest concern was what nutritious but yummy delights I was going to make for our breakfast and lunch. For the first time in a long time I felt completely relaxed.

I was pressed into service as a babysitter while my son worked and my daughter-in-law wrapped up her two kindergarten classes for the year, getting her students graduated into first grade. I fell into the role naturally and grew more confident as each day passed.
The truth is Kayla could have gone to the nursery at the school where her mother teaches like she usually does. But Rick asked me to leave for a week and the kids graciously offered me a place to stay. A long-neglected project in our laundry finally got moved to the front burner and Rick was willing to tackle it as long as I was out of the house. He didn’t want my input, he said. Fine.
