road trip day 23: winding down

sunrise toward the Shenandoah Mountains

We woke up at 5 am this morning so we could drive #1 and #1b to the airport. It was so much better than great to have them fly out to hang with us at the beach. The poor things did not have a full month off like G and I. Ahhh, the benefits of being teachers.

Tomorrow we may go to Mount Vernon or Monticello, Tuesday I will spend some final time with my sister, and then on Wednesday I am having lunch with a high school friend and dinner with 2 college buddies. So excited!

I am having a little anxiety about leaving my 15-year old here, only because I stress a little when our little nuclear family is so spread out. I am sure everything will be fine, but it is tough. One in Mexico, one in VA, three of us transient until next weekend when we get back home, and the married son and wife in UT. Just a bit jumbled.

Thanks for stopping by.

The spreading family is tough. It feels too disconnected to have them all flying around in different directions. Bring my babies back to my nest. Then I sleep better.

Such an amazing trip you have been able to have! I can't fathom the scenery you have enjoyed.

Have a blast with your high school friends. You've been out of high school for ...what like 3 years?

It has been so fun going on this trip with you. Such a beautiful photo!
Hope #3 enjoys his extended stay in Virginia. He'll be home before you know it!
