Post-Vacation Recovery Mode

Exactly one week ago tonight we were pulling back into our driveway after spending a wonderful week at Walt Disney World. Can I go back yet?
Our trip was as fun and exhausting as a tour through "The World" always is. I was pretty sick most of the week, but tried not to let it slow me down too much. We all kept thinking about how we ended last year's trip! No desire to go that route again!

I'll post more photos soon. Emelie was our photographer, and she took over 3000 photos. Praise God for digital! We've got a bit of sorting to do!

Once we got home, everyone started coming down with the sniffles. By Tuesday, Hunter was having difficulty breathing. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and narrowly escaped another hospitalization. After a bunch of meds and breathing treatments, he's doing much better!

Needless to say, we're moving slow in getting back in the swing of things. When my type-A, get-it-done personality rears its ugly head, I'm trying reminding myself that the beauty of our homeschooling lifestyle is the ability to adjust to what life is throwing at us at the time!


  1. Oh yuck! Is everyone better now? Call if you need anything!

  2. Taking a break from the unpacking . . . thought I'd check my email and peek at a couple blogs. Maybe even attempt an update on my blog???

    That was so sweet that your read my blog on your sleepless night! Should I be sorry that it didn't put you to sleep??? ;)

    Macon is just two hours from my house in Albany. sounds like you took I-75 all the way down to FL. I now live right off I-95 -- if you are ever over this way please stop by!!!!

    Sorry to hear you all got sick when you returned from your glorious vacation. I hope everyone is feeling better soon! I look forward to seeing your awesome pics!

    Ok. Back to work! :)
