Last week we made a quick trip down to Florida. One of our elderly relatives passed away, so we went down for the funeral. It only took me about 2 hours to pack for 5 people, which was a new record for me. Most of the time I pack way too much stuff, but this time I only packed what we actually needed for a three day trip. The unpacking was so much easier when we got home because we didn’t have oodles of clothes and shoes to put away.
While in Florida, the kids enjoyed swimming in Mimi’s pool.
We also had fun visiting the grandparents. Here’s Lil’ Nut giving some sugar to Pa Pa.
Grandma made her delicious banana pudding. Our family devoured the whole bowl of pudding in about 10 minutes.
My husband had the honor of preaching the graduation service for the Christian school at our home church. Time is sure flying by; some of these kids were my students when they were in elementary school! Many of the alumni were there, so we visited with some of our “old” friends.
We headed home with three kids instead of four. Mickey Mouse will be spending the next few weeks with his grandparents and NO GIRLS!
Thanks to those of you who were praying for our safety on the roads; the smoke from the Georgia/Florida fires was pretty thick for about 100 miles on the drive home, but praise the Lord we made it through without any accidents or interstate closures. Mr. C was in a hurry to get home, but he still stopped for us to eat at my favorite highway restaurant.
This week I’m playing catch-up around the house and nursing a little cold I picked up somewhere. I also need to file all of our year-end homeschool reports and pack up our school books, but I’m not in a hurry to get everything done. One day at a time! 🙂
