7 days

I've been home a mere seven days this month....that's not much time for getting things done, so I've got some catching up to do around here.  My reason for being so absent around these parts is that first, Maggie and I went to Penn State for a basketball tournament and then the entire family went to Myrtle Beach for a much needed vacation.  Here are some photos that highlight our recent trips:
 I have some knitting started and some stitching done....and as a family we finished 5 books (collectively) making a new family record and in addition (or maybe because of)  we came home relaxed and rested.  In the meantime, I'll get some grocery shopping done, laundry attempted and I'll be back soon to share some projects with you.  Hope your summer is full of all the things you love.  Have a wonderful week!

It's nice to see you back! Looks like both of your trips were a grand success, but I imagine you're pretty glad to be home again. : )

I don't think I've mentioned it yet, but I like your summer blog title banner. It's so cheery and makes me smile!

Oh, what fun! You take such great pictures. I bet you will be glad to be home, but what fun to get to do some fun things with your family.

I spot the UNC logo. Who went there I am wondering?

Seven days at home this month...yes, you must have some catching up to do on the homefront!
Welcome Home. One of my favorite words, home.

Sounds like you've been very busy. But at least there was lots of family time and lots of relaxing! And there is still lots of summer left, keep on enjoying!!

I think you need a vacation from your vacation....All that laundry would do me in!

the photos you chose capture your days perfectly!! your vacation looks like it was "quick style" and full of fun. I'm thinking you found your Christmas card photo...I want a copy of the last shot of the kids!! remember all the good times that went into making all of that laundry, and it will be worth the effort. :)

So glad you had a relaxing and refreshing time. Your children look brown as berries! And it's nice to have a photo of someone reading a book. Happy homecoming!
