A couple thousand miles later ....

We aren't quite home yet, but we will be any minute. Or any hour. Or something. (And, hey, any thieving sorts who are considering robbing our house? Let me assure you of the following ... everything of value that we own is with us. Piled high in the van each day, and dutifully hauled into new hotels each night. Atticus, Chief Hauler for the last 10 days, can attest to that. Given the amount of luggage we have with us, there couldn't possibly be anything left at home.)

We've seen Falling Water, Gettysburg, the wonderful group of women (and men!) who attended the fabulous Family Centered Learning Conference. Alice kindly rounded up a number of posts, and I'm stealing the links from her. Thank you, Alice!

Please see:
Michele Quigley
Margaret in Minnesota
Kimberlee of Pondered in My Heart
Mary Ellen Barrett
Heather of Doodle Acres
and Michelle Joy Waters of Living Waters

We followed up the conference with a bit of sightseeing in Washington D.C., as well as a joyful reunion with some old friends there.

Today, Atticus forced us to suggested that we push it hard and drive all day long and well into the evening. I think he's ready to see Nebraska again. I am, too, but it's been a marvelous trip and I can't wait to tell you more.

As soon as we're home.

Are we there yet?

I'm looking forward to hearing all about it. I've missed your writing...though I'll trade it for seeing your pretty face and hearing your sweet voice any time.

Love you, Bea!

Oh, I am so glad you made that trip!!!! So very, very glad!

[And doubled over in laughter to notice Diana Banana's icon for the first time! A classic.]

Sounds like you had a marvelous time. The only are we there yet that we've been focusing on is this big shindig that's happening in: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? TWO DAYS!!! So needless to say some of us are just a wee bit excited. Thanks for all the prayer support. Please pray for the wedding, the honeymoon, a job for Jim, and a blessed marriage that is a real witness to their friends and family.

Hope you have a safe drive! I've missed reading your daily posts during my "mumma" quiet time each afternoon.

Karen, so great to meet you at the conference! Godspeed with your writing project!
