first of all, thank you. for praying for our family and my son and his surgery and recovery.
everything went great for him...fantastic outcome with his surgery, he gets a whole year in between this time (yay!) we are all so excited to have an entire year uninterrupted by surgery!
we have decided to kick it off with a vacation:)
our family will be heading south on saturday to spend a while in a gargantuan beach house in the outer banks, north carolina. perfect. i can sit on the deck and watch my guys surf fish:) we will get to spend some time with my husbands parents and perhaps his sisters too.
this is super significant for us because we haven't taken a vacation or even any time off as a family except for surgery in over 6 years!!
in other news...
i am also in the midst of preparing for my largest craft show event that i do all year.
and, oh yeah--it starts the day after we get home from north carolina!
i am up to my eyeballs in awesome ideas for items i want to make and don't have time to. so i'll do what i can and leave the rest!
i am also trying my hardest to grade, record, and get our next set of homeschooling lesson plans done before i leave...
so even though i may look like i could be reading something relaxing and enjoyable here, i am really just being a teacher...
and as much as it pains me to say, i promise to take pictures of the vacation and the show to share with you lovely folks. i seriously just need to get over my phobia of the camera already!
