Nana Montana



Spring Break came early in the White house, this year, when Nana flew in for an impromptu visit.

Homeschooling perk #792: We shelved our studies (save for reading & writing– nana only missed one 6th grade spelling word on test day) and instead partook of a brief staycation.

She came for one last stay before we move back to Oregon— to see the girls perform in the Wizard of Oz, celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day, and daily wrestle me for control of the kitchen with repeated threats of “crafts and baking“. Truth be told, it was a leisurely week of lunching, shopping, Netflix binging, and general indulgence.

We weren’t the only ones who enjoyed Nana’s visit, Garfield & Mao seemed convinced she was feline– but who could blame them, what with her cat-eye glasses and fuzzy, animal-print jammies?
