It’s been a while since my last posting. It’s been a sort of whirlwind as I finished my Master’s Degree with a final exam on Friday morning and then we drove straight home complicated by Haddon throwing up most of the way home…ergh! (we threw away his car seat after the first incident). Saturday was a yard sale day (for which Chrissy had well-prepared before we left for SC).
Since then, it has been the process of getting our feet back under us. I spent most of Monday and Tuesday making lists of things I need to do in the school. Today I took a short day so I could spend some time with the boys and so Chrissy can get out.
The last weekend in SC, we went to the world-famous Beacon. I hadn’t been before, and we found it well worth the drive to Spartanburg. I had a chili-cheese-a-plenty. They heap it on there. The atmosphere is unique, with its own lingo. No one serves more ice tea in the United States.
I haven’t had a lot of time to read in the past few days but today I did read a good little biography of George Washington I bought at Mount Vernon in April; it was written by DK for teenagers. As much as a biography, it was a good review of the events surrounding the birth of our country. Here is my mini-review.
