this calls for celebration!

Joe's Rock Wilderness on Zibby's 3rd Birthday about a month after we moved here.

Typical school morning a few weeks ago (10, 8, 4)

Last night we ate a pot roast dinner together, with cloth napkins, and flickering taper candles in the dining room. We shared chocolate covered strawberries (made with love by two very precocious four year olds), and popped open a bottle of bubbly champagne.

Wednesday, October 25th

Our family calendar reveals the normalcy of the day.

No holiday.

No birthdays.

Last night we celebrated our Thanksgiving to God.

We returned to give Him praise....

The reason:

Our house here in New England has officially sold....under new ownership.

We know what that means...

We are going home.

Moving date set: November 12&13th

(We will be living with Papa & Gramma for over a month...that means all of us, dog & cat included! Adventures await:)

photos above: notice how much the kids have changed in just a year and a's truly shocking.
