i also packed for 8 people to be gone for 7 days...

but we had to have some fun, too!

dunkin donuts in between last minute errands...

and, in the MIDDLE of naptime, i woke EVERYONE up and we drove 1/2 mile away to cheer for these guys! it was AMAZING!!!
about 2,000 motorcylists driving to honor those that died on 9/11



there's not much that will cause me to shorten naptime...this was worth it!
{ps. i have tentatively decided that i will NOT be blogging while we're gone. i think the break will be good. i want to SOAK in my family and friends. and, if i happen to have a miraculous moment free, i want to read or sleep or run. BUT, i have scheduled posts to be posted all week long - lots of remembering and reflecting on africa. good stuff. and i might pop in a time or two...you never know! :-)}

I think the break will be good for you. Enjoy your sweet family and friends. This will be a huge milestone of a week for you. Watching Lincoln and Levi enjoy it all for the first time is going to be amazing. Hoping you feel like you get a break and some refreshment too!! Love you!
