- I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

A Romantic Date With A Purpose Courtesy of Our 10 Year Old
"What is this?" I asked B. "It's a romantic, date-with-a-purpose dinner for you and Daddy tonight," he replied, with a big smile. I just wrapped that sweet boy up into my arms, hugged him and tried, unsuccessfully, not to cry. When I knew I could speak, I asked, "And where will you be while Daddy and I are having this romantic, date-with-a-pupose?" "Eating in the kitchen. And I won't say a word," he promised.
We not only had a romantic, date-with-a-purpose dinner with just the two of us at the table, we had dinner and a show. B kindly selected the oh-so-romantic movie, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. LOL! It was perfect! The candle on the table was lit, the hubs and I held hands while we ate dinner and all but two Jedis were wiped off the face of the galaxy. It's OK, though; The One Who Will Bring Balance to The Force was born in the end.
