Let's Play Catch Up!

Wow! I have missed a lot of time on here and I have a lot to catch you up on! We have been away for 2 weeks and just returned home yesterday.

After returning from Virginia from my sister in law's funeral, I spent the next several days preparing for our vacation. We left on August 28th for Myrtle Beach. My sister has time shares and she invited us to go along with her. We were able to spend a week down there. I love the Beach and it was wonderful for me to get there.

After we left Myrtle Beach, we traveled to Virginia to visit my Mom and the rest of my extended family. We usually only get there about once a year, so it was wonderful to see everyone! We made a trip into Washington DC one day and we were able to go visit Faith's grave.

I will do more posts to show some pictures of our trip. I am trying to get things in order here at home, so I am trying not to spend too much time here. Today the kids are doing schoolwork, but a little more casual than usual. We are trying to recuperate from our trip, but tomorrow we must dive right in and get busy.

Before we left, Jeremy found these eggs in the turtle habitat. The turtles will often bury themselves way down and it can be hard to find them. He was digging around trying to make sure they were all OK when he found the eggs.

There is a total of 4 eggs!

When we arrived home yesterday we found this little guy.

Isn't he or she cute?

We have not seen any other baby turtles, so we do not know if they have hatched or something has happened to them.  We are hoping there are more out there somewhere.

I have to go and get busy getting something done around here. I will post more about our vacation real soon!

Vacation is always a wonderful break. I didn't realize that Faith was buried someplace else. Our son is buried about 3 and a half hours from us so we only go up there once in a while, but it is where all of my husbands family is buried so we felt that was the best place. Glad you got to visit Faith on your trip.
