Traveling Clan

 When you have a farm, travel is a lot of work.  Finding reliable farm-sitters and making sure the feed bin is well stocked is a little different than dropping the dog off at the kennel for the weekend.  Over a six week period in August and September, we were out of town four of those weekends.  It was fantastic.  And tiring.  And FUN!
We enjoyed the beach (twice) with some dear, dear friends.
I really like this cute guy!

Don't mess with the mommas!
We then enjoyed our annual trip to the lake with our other favorite family.
 Even the big kids got to play in the water.

 Our final trip was to the NC mountains.  Did you know that Asheville is the home to the largest privately owned home in America? I have had the privilege of visiting the Biltmore Estate several times since I was a little girl; but this was the first time for our kids and they were impressed.   Sometimes it's hard to impress preteen/teens.  They really and truly enjoyed it! If you are looking for something fun to do with older kids, I highly recommend a visit.
 Oh, and while you're there, save time for Tupelo Honey Cafe.  The biscuits alone are worth the wait to get in.

After all that travel, it was time for me to don the teacher hat and snap our class back into order.

  I know it's annoying weird that I'm posting vacation pictures on my blog.  Yawn.  But a friend (whom I didn't know read my blog) stopped me the other day and said, "We are missing you on your blog.  You need to catch us up!"  So that's what this little post is ... me playing catch up.  Thanks for stopping by enduring the onslaught of family pictures.
