We are back!
I loved being gone the last week of summer but will make sure I have all my school stuff ready before I leave next year. Holy busy, batman. School forms/supplies/back to school night coupled with house-guest preparation (cleaning, unpacking, groceries, laundry) nearly killed me yesterday. I survived, however, and am feeling much more in control today. (Patrick helped out a lot after work last night, thank God.) I can't wait to see Cheryl and her family later! :) We are all so excited!
Our mini-vacation was wonderful. Duluth graced us with beautiful weather which is not something you ever take for granted in Duluth. We had lots of fun as a family and I was once again reminded (not that I ever forget) how wonderful my family of origin is. I got to see my aunties, cousins, baby cousins, parents, in-laws...it was so wonderful. We are so blessed.
I'll show you one geeky tourist thing we did and ended up loving...
Beginning of the ride: (James actually sat between us because he couldn't really reach the pedals yet. Next year!)
Hope you are all well and enjoyed our last week of August, 2011!
