So, here we are a week later and still trying to unpack all of our stuff. It was nice to be home. Ruth put flowers in the front of the house while we were away. What a great homecoming present! Gwen and Ailish promptly tore into their toys, having missed them greatly. I was surprised to see that the kazoo was the first thing they picked up. Gwen ripped all of their books out to read. Ailish was itchy from her sunburn, so she was rubbing her back on the doors and furniture. When she resorted to rolling on the floor, I gave her a wooden spoon to rub her back. Ha Ha! With the dust settled and us back into our routine, we have time to reflect on the great vacation we had and how we hope to do it again next year. Hopefully, we'll have some time to go to the fair in August to meet up. Lots of love to all of you!!!
