Still here! For the moment anyway....

This is just sort of an update type of post.

We have been putting up veggies from the garden... squash and green beans. We have tomatoes coming in that should be ripened enough soon to can stewed tomatoes. We have also been blueberry picking and freezing them. Yummmmmmy!

The exciting news around the Beehive right now is that we are taking a trip to Maine. Everyone is very, very excited! Well, except Dale. The poor guy has to stay home and work, as it is pretty busy right now. I told him I would bring him a present. :)

This all started because I realized that I had scheduled school to start on the 15th of this month. Not a problem, but I was still feeling unmotivated, and burnt out from last term. The one time I felt like this before and went ahead and started school anyway was a BIG mistake. I decided that I would never start school again until I was mentally ready for the challenge.

I was talking to Dale about it and half jokingly said something about needing some fresh, ocean air to clear out my cobwebs and re-energize me. One thing lead to another, details and logistics worked out, and now we leave Thursday! All the kids and I are off to Grandma and Grandpa's house on the coast.

This week is going to be busy with preparations, so most likely the next post will be from Maine. I plan on blogging everyday with pictures so Dale can see what his family is up to. ;)

I haven't decided if this is a "running away" tactic, or a wise move before the intense school year starts. It doesn't matter, now, does it? Either way, we are off, and we are very excited to have the opportunity to do so!

Next stop: MAINE!

How fun and so can not wait to read about your adventures! I love traveling even with my kids by myself. Maine is so pretty. My dad used to live in Lisbon something or other on the coast. I miss it.
