Woo hoo! I think we had our first real family vacation. Well, real enough for us anyway. We managed to escape "normal" life for a few days and spend some time in a nearby beachside resort. (Don't let the glamorous description fool you.) Let's just say this place was PERFECT for us Beverly Hillbillies. I even discovered what I am now calling a perfect day. Time spent on a porch swing while blowing bubbles with your children can be a soothing balm. The cherry-vanilla ice cream was quite soothing, too! It was great to getaway.
We got back into town and immediately dug into planning Libby's Narnia party. (Oh, if only there had been plates, cups and napkins of the Narnia theme!) There were swords, sheilds and daggers to be made...games and decorations to come up with...food to be bought. Whew. Of course, we got it all together for the big day, and God blessed us with a wonderful celebration of Libby's 6th birthday.
I am so thankful for the rest we had, Libby's birthday, and the days ahead. Life is about to change as we plunge into homeschooling next week. I am excited about it all!
