The gift of time

Wednesday was the first day of summer vacation
here in Luxembourg. 

We get up at 6.30 every morning on normal school days, so we really like to sleep a little longer in summer. 
I woke up at 10. When I came downstairs, 
the kids told me to get back into bed, because they
had prepared a surprise for me. 

The paper is a gift certificate for two hours of their time. 
I love the gift of time. 

I can use it to read a book, or listen to an audio book, 
or take a nap....whatever I want, without interruption. 
They are so sweet.
