Today starts our last week of school before a Spring Break week off!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I'm hiding my excitement pretty well ;o)
Phil's work shifts have gotten longer - a mixed blessing to be sure -
and so has his Seminary work load,
so I'm feeling the crunch of more single-parenting
and less time with my sweet hubby.
Saturday was a gorgeous day, and Phil had the day off, so we decided to spend it as a family.
We just started driving north-west and, eventually, pulled off the interstate in the little town of Hillsborough, NC.
We went for a walk through the little down-town area and out the other side.
Stumbled on a Revolutionary War re-enactment camp.
The boys just wanted to know if the food over the campfire
Went in to some really old, historic buildings,
which, my boys declared, "smelled funny" - in their loudest voices, of course.
Climbed this massive magnolia tree.
Isn't it amazing?
Thomas made the walk interesting in his own way . . .
No, we're not teaching him that he's a dog.
It just comes naturally ;o)
We did finally wear him out. . . . long after he did the same to us.
