Hello my friends ... I have been away too long.
Our guest has returned home to France. It was such a wonderful experience to have her stay with us. We were busy everyday ... showing her as much of our local community and state that we could fit in. Shopping in our little downtown shops, trying different restaurants, a weekend away to a waterpark, and a fun night of "laser tag" was a hit ... As was a sleep over with all the seventh grade girls. My children got so much in return ... They practiced their French and made a new friend along with memories they will cherish for a lifetime.
Unfortunately, I have been ill for this past week. Other than crawling out of the house to make it to the office, my days and nights have been spent in bed. By Friday, I couldn't even manage that. I hope to be up tomorrow .... Your beautiful posts have kept my spirits up and I miss my craft room so!
