Back Home

We're back from a long road trip to Upstate New York, where Hubby grew up. Other than several gum related disasters on the way home (Cinderella Barbie may never be the same; she's in the freezer awaiting her fate), we managed to travel over a thousand miles with wee ones relatively well. We stopped at Niagara Falls on the way there - Crockett more interested in catching a seagull than seeing the sights - but I forgot my camera on this trip so I have nothing to show for it. Other highlights include the van speakers going out at the best parts of our audio books. Necessity is the mother of invention; a good beating of the dashboard proved a temporary solution. When the speakers gave out, a chorus of "Bump it, Dad!" rang out from the back.

Good friends from Fargo were in town yesterday with their four (almost five) children, so much fun was had despite the impending doom of piles of laundry and mail to go through. It's off to work I go...

We are between Syracuse and Rochester! :) I enjoy your blog....seeing someone else go through similar things encourages me on my homeschool journey!

Hey, you were in my neck of the woods, at least part of the time!

We haven't been to Niagara Falls in years, because the view from the Canadian side is better, and until we have 'citizenship papers' on our youngest, it seems unwise to make the trip.

(Oh, he's long since a citizen. But I'd be afraid that the adoption-issued birth certificate would not be adequate, and my nightmare is that we'd have trouble getting back into the states!)

Naturally, this "optional" process is ridiculously expensive, too.

Anyway, how cool that you were out this way! Maybe we passed each other on the highway, and didn't even know it! :)
