The other day my husband and I were trying to have a conversation with our children about our plans for the summer. Our summer plans since 1997 have been Maine.
We have made many friends there and it is our tradition.
We thought that maybe our children have tired of it and thought they would like to travel to some new spots.
Well, we were dead wrong. It set our two oldest children into a tailspin. These were some of their comments in between terror and tears.
What do you mean no Maine?, We have to go to Maine…it is not summer without Maine. I hate you, I can’t believe you are doing this to us. I don’t care about seeing the world, I just care about Maine.
My husband and I looked at each other and shrugged…and I said ” Okay. Maine Forever!”.
