A few weeks ago....
for Fall Break, I headed up to Greer with the little monkeys. I figured since everyone's music, dance, art, sports and scouts were cancelled...we might as well head up and spend the week enjoying the changing leaves, crisp weather, and mountain air.
It was so nice to be away from the tv, internet, and cell phones - the perfect place to focus on our time with each other. We played loads of games, decorated a spooky gingerbread house, and went on lots and lots of walks. One day a man showed up on the porch with 2 new little Jack Russell puppies wondering if we knew who they belonged to. We eventually found the owner and discovered that 7 puppies had gotten out and ran away. We walked and walked and walked and helped him find a few more puppies. My happiest memories from the weekend were from hearing my children earnestly pray for the puppies to be found. Love these sweet, sweet kids of mine!
Halfway through the week, Daddy and some of our good friends showed up. It was so much fun having Heather and Tadd there with us with their kids....good laughs, good food (for them - ha!), trips to the river, ice cream (none for me...wah!), riding quads, reading magazines, making s'mores...it went WAY too fast! Hmmm.....maybe it's time to go back already!
