back.

kentucky had a sobering beauty: we'd snake along a dirt road to a peeling single-wide that was maybe twice the square footage of my hallway, and yet this trailer overlooked undulating foothills, a leafy vista which many a person would gladly pay millions for.

i wish the organization would have worked us a bit harder, but overall the week went well, and i was pretty much giddy to have the chance to forge stronger relationships with our teens. what a stellar group of kids.

meanwhile, my own four little people were, from all reports, having the time of their young lives with the grandparents in michigan. i'm quite certain they didn't miss us at all, which is quite honestly a mighty good thing.

now we're settling into a summer routine of sorts: some morning table work, some puttering about the house, some cavorting outdoors, and a good dose of crafting and making sprinkled over the entire day.

it's good to be home, but i'd dive headlong into another such project in a heartbeat.

Thanks for trusting us to care for the grandkids. We enjoyed it. The house was sure quiet this morning. You are raising great kids, I feel blessed as a grandparent.

I do admit I since a need to play a game of tag, nobody here wants to play.
