The week was jam packed--Mass, Ikea, homeschooling, library, running around the house like crazy. Beautiful. To those of you who live near family: EMBRACE IT! You are so blessed! I have never had any family near by while raising my children. In this age of technology, I can't feel too sorry for myself. I have seen so many (ok, all) of the Hallmark movies --you know the ones, by Janette Oke: Love's Enduring Promise or something, ad infinitum--where the young couple moves far from family and basically never sees them again.
For some reason the rest of this post got deleted:( I don't feel like writing it again, but trust me, it was life changing.
