In general, things are progressing well and a schedule is taking shape. However, the late afternoons get a little challenging for a 4-year-old girl who can't understand why she can't go visit her Mom. As a mini celebration of successfully surviving week 1, I made a lunch appointment with Edie. For tea.
We went to my go-to tea house, The Tea House on Los Rios, located in the historic district of San Juan Capistrano. It was the first tea place I visited when we moved to California nearly 13 years ago, and you don't need to make reservations in order to have access to the tea menu.
Our hostess mentioned the availablity of hats, which Edie jumped on immediately. (Much to her mother's chagrin!)
|I don't wear hats for just anyone. Is that a sombrero I'm wearing?!?|
When I asked Edie what she thought of going to tea, she thought for a moment and replied, "I thought it was going to be really, really cool! But it wasn't." Oh well.
At least there were rocks to climb on in the park next door.
