fishing with BuppaNa
did you miss me?
i had a flurry of activity in this space as I took advantage of the last day or two with no kids at home, then- nothing! school ended and we packed up and drove to Indiana to visit the grandparents.
we had a great visit! we did the usual (Children's Museum, swimming, Zoo, hanging at the grandparents very comfortable house, fireworks, fishing, extended family July 4th BBQ, yummy food and drink, USA shopping, and lots of nice social time- see last year's post for photos! I hardly took any this year. I guess i was out of 'real life' too much). it's a long drive both ways, but the kids are great little travelers and it's worth it for the visit.
we got back a few days ago- i'm unpacked, and mostly settled. the kids are settling in too. i noticed some real growing pains for the first few days after we got back. since we went straight to Indiana, the first real days of summer 'nothing' were this week. after a few days of squabbling and purposeful oppositionality (as in 'The other 2 want to do X? Well, I want to do Y!) i think we've hit our stride.
