My four goals of vacation:
1. See the sunrise 6 times. Run every other morning. Get in the Bible the other mornings. This means 6:25am sunrise = breakfast at 5:45am.
2. Play with AJ. A lot. Beach. Water. Sand Castles. And the epic Wheelee Ball
3. Walks with the wife after AJ is in bed. I guess she has to agree on this.
4. Read a book. Just one. With a house full of people I'm only shooting for one book to read and let simmer in my brain and heart. I'm choosing The Children of Divorce: The Loss of Family as the Loss of Being. My parents are still married, but divorce is an epidemic that I will never fully understand since I haven't experienced it, so I need to continue to dig into understanding it.
Simple list? That's the point!
