I've pretty much ditched my blog for the past couple of weeks. Completely unintentional, I've just been busy.
Two weeks ago I was busy prepping for our 2nd quarter of CC; because we were going out of town during the quarter break & I bumped up our tutor meeting a week early I had a lot to do!
On Tuesday was our last day before quarter break & then we left for our vacation around lunchtime on Wednesday. It was great to be on our way! We made it to Asheville, NC around 1am & went to the Biltmore Estate on Thursday.
Yes, even after all of these years I absolutely love to go there. It's gorgeous, historical, filled with wonderful memories & it totally relaxes me. I would've loved to go for a second day this time!
We drove up the Blue Ridge and went gem mining, into caves, visited an old watermill & went hiking. We also stayed in an old one room cabin off of the Blue Ridge one night - it was neat!
Yesterday we rounded out our family vacation with a visit to historic Jamestown. That was awesome!!! Seeing the actual 400-year-old foundations of the buildings that first went up by the English was really neat.
Ray & the kids then dropped me off in Gainesville, VA; I'm spending the week in some training for CC - very long but interesting & productive 12 hour days!
Ray is driving home with the kids & staying at his grandfather's property for a couple of days first. I'll fly home Friday at midnight.
