First things first. I received the Before Summer Ends CD in the mail I ordered a couple of weeks ago. It is really good and we all love it. Nice job guys! It puts a smile on my face when I come across new music and so I was psyched to get it.
On that note, I love getting mail here...actually we all enjoy it. It doesnt happen often because most people dont send things so far away...too much work I think. But every now and then we get something from home...a card, a letter...sometimes a care package. It is pretty cool when we get something other than a bill. :)
Other than our mail, it was pretty uneventful today. Between wrapping mummies (see the link below) with the boys while we learn about the Egyptians to helping John pack for his trip to India, it has been busy. John leaves in the morning and will be gone for 16 days. Ouch...that is gonna hurt I think. He is going for work and while he will be very busy, it is a trip of a lifetime. I hope he has fun. I could have gone but with the start of homeschooling, I opted to stay here. The kids don't need any more change right now and honestly, I don't either. I am already bummed to think of all the wonderful sights that my eyes could see and my lens could capture if I were going. Maybe another time. We all went to dinner tonight at Gauchos before he goes. It is a quaint little Italian restaurant with exposed brick and dim lights. Very cozy. I snapped this shot as we walked in. I have always liked this lantern hanging in the doorway.
Do me a favor and keep all of us in your thoughts and prayers these next few weeks while he is away. Thanks!
