according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

About Me

Sunny Florida, United States
I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Well, we're home...  Friday we decided to drive straight home and skip Mt. Vernon and the Yorktown/Williamsburg/Jamestown "triangle".  :o(  Mama's not happy about that, but Reese was happy to be going home.  His July has been incredibly busy and he just wanted to get home for a week of rest before school started again.  Can't blame him... 

So we drove almost 14 hours (got up there in 12...) and were glad to be greeted at home by Mark, Erik and my mom.  :o) 

Tomorrow's Monday and I head back to work, Mom goes back to Seattle today and Reese ...I guess Reese will hang out at home with Erik or with his friends.  And life goes on...

Thank you for keeping up with my blog this week!!  Our Family Bouquet has been horribly neglected and it was kinda fun to revive it again for a week.  Hope you enjoyed it!  :o)

Loved your blog! Hope it "sends me alerts when you make your posts." It's been so fun - and Missy, you are the BEST blogger of the people I know that do have blogs. Your pictures were just phenomenal!

Your Mother is an extraordinary Grandma to come and stay with Erik all the way from Seattle. I'm sure they BOTH love the time together. How did you end up so far from her - literally East Coast to West Coast?! Who moved first?

Rest well to both you and Reese!
Kathy :)

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
