We’re in packing mode. We made it safely back from North Dakota on Tuesday without any drama. Someone usually gets sick when we fly, and it is Mariah. Hopefully the cough won’t go round the family. Yesterday I purchased the extra boxes into which we are trying to squeeze the stuff we’ve accumulated here – mostly books (homeschool curriculum, reading books, etc., plus a great used-book seller here in Portland closed down while we were here . . . bargain time!) So for the next few days it is about being with family, trying to get healthy and packing packing packing. I will try to get some pictures of the family reunion on here though!
