In 7 days, Spencer and I have visited 6 countries, and we still have one more to go. I have said it before - we take "trips" and NOT "vacations." My feet could have a story of their own to tell about our last week, but I'll wait and document it well once we're home. I'm missing my kids and am so grateful for my parents (and some friends) who have made it possible for us to take this trip of a lifetime. And of course for Spencer's parents who did the "tourist" thing with us for a few days and made it much easier on me to have at least 3 other people who I could understand (and who could understand me). As we are winding down, I told Spencer that one sign of a perfect trip is the fact that you're ready to go home. And I'm definitely getting to that point. What an incredible time we've had!

Why is it that now that I have a child in the school system who has an "official" Spring Break, I feel so much more pressure to make it fun? When I was growing up we just had nice beaches to go to that were close and it was easy and fun to enjoy our breaks from school. We don't have such a luxury here; we actually have to work for our fun.
...listened to Conference, and then because it was POURING, took some cute and also some goofy pictures inside.
...worked on getting a section of the backyard ready for a garden. The best part was seeing Tyler working (with a hand shovel) right along Spencer (with the big shovel). Later I asked Spencer if Tyler really was any help to him and he said, "No, but that wasn't the point." Love my boys.
