I’m Back…Partially

April 18, 2012

We’ve driven halfway across the country and part way back…

…despite my absence in blogging, I’m still alive.  {In case you were wondering. ;-)}

We have some more sights and people to see in Georgia and North Carolina yet to go, but thought I would pop in to share some of my favorite snapshots so far.  These are in no particular order because I’m using an old lap top about to breathe its’ last breath and it can’t even handle rearranging the order of the pictures.  Bear with us. 🙂

Keller has been a MAMA’S BOY ever since we left Oklahoma.  He acts like I’m going to leave him at every new place we’ve gone to, and doesn’t stray from my side for very long.

It’s rare that I’m in the photo, but my 9-yr-old brother, Sam, snapped this.  I now see why people say we look alike.

“Healthyish” easter egg hunt at the beach…

Found a white watch on clearance for $7 while at the beach and I’ve been trying to get used to wearing it.

My sister, Mandy, takes Keller and Shiloh on a bike stroll.

I had planned on running a tight ship with myself and had every intention to blog as we go.  But, I’ve found wifi, speedy internet connections, and working lap tops scarce while on the road.  Plus, I like vacations and a break from cyber space occasionally.  It simplifies life.  It makes me more present.  It takes me out of the loop.

I always say if I could afford to travel all year, I would.  I’ll be one of those old people that sells everything and buys a house boat so me and the hubs can spend our golden years traveling from port to port.  Are you one of those people?

When I was a teenager, you could ask me what I wanted to do “when I grew up”, and I couldn’t tell you all that much.   But I would tell you that I wanted to be a mom and that I wanted to travel.

Having a 3,2, and 1-yr-old hasn’t shaken that out of me…yet.  They are bonafied, superhero travelers, and they have honestly shocked me on every long trip we’ve taken with them.

All I can say is God is good to give kids like that to a gypsy mom at heart.

Speaking of gypsies, I like this song, and all the black and white videography.

I’ll try to be back sooner rather than later next time!.

    I had wondered about you but just thought life was busy. Well, it always is, but sometimes more than others. 🙂

    Beautiful pictures!

    Love this little glimpse into your beach getaway! Looks like ya’ll are having a blast! I love how you say Keller is attached to you…so much like Luke 🙂 (by the way, he finally started walking but is still a Mama’s boy). We miss you guys! Be safe and have fun!
