2009 ~ A Good Year!

This was the year we married off our first child! Another graduated and got engaged, Hubby and 16 yo son climbed a mountain. We took a long roadtrip back to our old, early-marriage stomping grounds in Boston and all over New England. We camped in Knoxville, TN, visited Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Rhode Island, camped in Plymouth, Mass., Maine (Acadia National Park!), New Hampshire, Vermont, and in Pennsylvania. That was a phenomenal and memory-making trip!!

My Charlotte Mason bookclub continues to grow and flourish, and I so enjoy seeing these friends each month for tea and great discussion! It is a time of laughter and of mentoring, as well!

We visited our married kids in Omaha, NE, for thanksgiving holidays which was really a roadmark of life change, hehe. I also did more updating on FaceBook than on this blog, for the ease of exchange that it provides.

Christmas was spent with my extended family during the Oklahoma (actually the whole midwest!) blizzard of Christmas '09. We have sevaral exciting stories of being stuck and stranded to share :-).

I'll continue to teach and tutor Spanish in the new year, continue bookbinding and vintage book restoration, and will be busy preparing the homefront for another wedding. Will also be getting the next teen in line prepared for taking the SAT.

So, until next year, I bid you all adieu and
