Cherished Time Together

20160914_130612

Brendan and I spent two days at Colonial Williamsburg on the 14th and 15th…yep, I took my 16 1/2 year old on a field trip 🙂 !

I knew that Brendan would be studying Colonial times this year and kept going back and forth in my mind…

Was it a bad idea to make him miss his “regular” schoolwork?  Would he even want to go?  What if we don’t go and I miss out on that special one-to-one time with my oldest?  Was it worth the extra cost?

 YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!

It was soooooo worth it!

We laughed together, learned some cool things, went out to eat, spent time talking, did a little shopping at the outlets (Brendan was a good sport), and just enjoyed being together.

This is probably one of the last official “field trips” that I’ll take with my oldest son (*sniff, sniff). I knew that I’d regret not doing it, but that I’d never regret just going for it – and I’m so glad that I did!  And I ‘m thankful that Brendan humored his mom and went along for the ride!
