Yesterday the kids and I drove up to GA to visit with my sisters. My nephew Scott was doing some training at Ft. Benning and had family day, so Merv & Joanne went and picked him up and brought him to my sister Chris' house for the day. It was good to see him again. He graduated today and flew to TX, where he will be in more training till January.

She was eating applesauce! :)

A pile of trouble!! :)

Today I am trying to clean up the house and get a little wash and a little packing done. We leave for PA in about 24 hours!

I am also starting a second blog for our school. I joined a blog ring with other families who use My Father's World curriculum and decided to have a blog specifically for that, so as not to bore those who aren't interested and so those in the blog ring don't have to wade through all my other posts to see what we are doing. BUT I am having a very frustrating time with the background on my new blog! Grrrr!! I will probably not work on it more till we get back from our trip.

We hope to start school on Monday, the 30th. :) I am starting to get excited about it now, finally!

I also found out today that I am going to be able to meet a childhood friend, while we are in PA, that I haven't seen in close to 20 years!! :) I cannot wait! I thought about her a lot over the years! I am really looking forward to seeing the rest of my family too! 16 months is a long time! ;) Well, longer than I've ever been apart from my family! I will enjoy every moment. We didn't plan much this time, so I am looking forward to just enjoying my family!! :)
