Finally Home

The twins celebrated their thirteenth birthday while we were on vacation.

We have been gone for over a month on a wonderful summer vacation. We took a train to Chicago, spent the next three weeks visiting family, and then we took a cross-country drive back home. The kids spent most of the trip outdoors canoeing, swimming, bouncing on a trampoline, and driving a tractor.

We also got to spend some time with my grandmother. She is 92 years old and still going strong. I treasure out time together.

It was a great summer break, but I am happy to be back home again. I am no longer tired or sick with mono, and I am feeling quite energetic about the new year. I am looking over the books I have purchased so far for next year, and I am getting excited.

Some of Decca’s books for next year.

And here is some of Tru’s books.

I am going to spend the rest of the month planning out our next school year, and then we will begin school on August 1st. I can’t wait!
