Boy, I've missed you all.
Lots going on here at the troops, but before my day gets carried away, wanted to check in with you, here and give you a little taste of how much FUN Daughter and I had in DC.
Exhausting time, but amazing.
And the Coach? He did just fine. Says he missed me, but handled things beautifully on his own. And the kids? I was so impressed. Turns out they CAN help a lot more around the house! Ha!
I just have a minute, but here's a bit of what we saw:
This is the Independence visitor's center in Philadelphia - they had an amazing hall with bronzes of the signers of the Declaration. Here we are with George.
This is Valley Forge - where Washington and his troops waited out the winter. These are all of the family we had on the trip. The Coach's mom and dad (he teaches 6th grade government) and two cousins.
Here is the 6th grade class in front of the White House in DC.
I promise I'll get more details posted soon.
It's been hectice here. Not only recovering from being gone 9 days (Daughter had her first plane trip coming home!), but my NEW HUTCH is in, full and hardware ordered. We are full swing into the last couple of weeks of school, our baby birds on the front porch have recently left the nest, my dishwasher has gone out, the rose bush is blooming and so much more!
We're having fun, for sure!
I can't wait to show you more of our trip. Hopefully soon! And I'm working on a post about some ways to save money - we've been working hard on that here at the troops. Can't wait to share with you! And hopefully hear ideas from you all, too!
In the meantime, Happy Tuesday! Glad to be back!
