well, i cannot believe it has been a week since my last post. as usual these days, it's been busy. my daughter finished her last week of preschool. it was a fun experience for her, but i think we are all ready to move on to something new. we have been preparing for a big trip. our first family vacation, with just the four of us, in, oh... ever?! we are taking a road trip... up to d.c (can you believe i've never been?), and then up further to ny. we haven't been back since we moved, and i am feeling oh so many emotions about seeing it and everyone again. i will be gone for two weeks. a good chunk of that will be out of the car, but boy am i little nervous. any of you taken a road trip with a 7 and 4 year old? i can remember the ones i took as a kid... somewhat fondly. mostly fond memories in hind sight. our motto (as parents) for this trip is... togetherness, patience, and low expectations. i don't really mean that last part negatively, i swear... just to remember to enjoy the little moments. i find if you don't expect grand things, you are pleasantly surprised by what comes. i'm taking my computer, so we will see if i can share bits.
i will keep the shop open but no shipping until i come back. be well!
