Now for the real reason for the post...we finished our home school area! We have have been talking about the best plan for this area since we moved in (just over a year ago now). The space used to look like this. It was a large kitchen table with 2 chairs and not a lot of functional wall/work space.

These are some of my favorite shots from the week...Ignore the foggy lens!
This was our last day...all tuckered out.
I don't know about you, but when I was a kid, vacation was visiting relatives (in their homes) going camping, going to the cabin (think rustic not luxurious) or ROAD TRIP. As an adult, I've had one vacation in another country (sans spouse), 2 vacations to San Diego where I froze and several camping trips with kids--enough about that. Thanks to my in laws I've now been to one of the nicest and most relaxing vacations so far.
Shall we talk about the airplane? We left bright and early at 5:30 am on Saturday...thankfully on the way there we had Auntie & Uncles to help with the kids...the way back was another story. But We definitely experienced God's mercy both ways as the kids were exceptionally well behaved and we didn't miss our (return) flights. And if you look closely at the collage, you can see Judah sleeping on the floor of the airplane and our two big kids all "packed" and ready to go.
We visited the North Carolina Battleship which was cool. Nothing like a Maurer family tradition. Those are some big guns!
