It’s Sophie’s Spring Break & we’re off on an adventure. The plan was to go to Washington, DC, but then Sophie remembered that I had once said that the the islands of Assateague and Chincoteague–home of the wild ponies in Marguerite Higgins’s book Misty of Chincoteague–were close to DC. Although I think I had said sort-of-close, when she asked if we could go there too; I said, yes. So it’s DC tomorrow & the ponies on Wed afternoon & home on Thursday–yikes! But it’ll be fun!! Then a gang of adults & kids for an Easter egg hunt & dinner–fun, too!
