Sneak Peek – Page 3

by

Sadly, our wonderful time away is coming to a close.  We fly home to California tomorrow (Friday) and I’m happy to say we’re not leaving with any regrets…we knew we couldn’t see or do it all so we enjoyed what we did do and packed in quite a few new and different experiences in our 8 days in Florida!  We’re tired but we’re still laughing (not a whole lot of exhausted bickering going on thankfully) and we’re all leaving with full and happy hearts.  Reality will probably hit us hard on Monday morning when we return to the school/work/housework routine but I’m grateful we’ll have the weekend to get settled a bit before we have to run too fast.  🙂  So, here’s our last “sneak peek” post…thanks for all the sweet comments this past week.  It has been so much fun sharing this experience with you all…thank you for sharing in our joy!
