we went from wi fi (medium fast) to an air card (not fast at all). we will be home late late tonight, and while i've had a fabulous time visiting with everyone, i must admit i'm more than a little excited to be reunited with high-speed internet service! :)
we have stopped off at lucas' aunt and uncle's house for a few days of visiting before heading back home. we're on day 2 (well, maybe 3 really, if you count friday evening) of aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents. it's been a great time! lots of washers and corn hole and tractor rides and croquet. all good stuff.
like i said, we should make it home sometime late tonight. i've already managed to get all but maybe 2 loads of laundry done (which is a HUGE accomplishment with the giant suitcase FULL of muddy messy clothes that we had). we should be able to jump right back into the swing of things without losing those few days to getting caught up and unpacked.
tomorrow we have friends coming over for the 4th for a cookout and sparklers and whatever else. i promise i will eventually get around to posting pictures and things more interesting than my random ramblings, but with company coming tomorrow, it may not happen 'til later in the week. in the meantime, i'm hoping to be able to see some fireworks somewhere... whether tonight before we go or tomorrow. i hope we can catch some. maybe. maybe not. but i hope. anyway, enjoy your holiday weekend! i know we will!
