What an adventure! We had such a great time, that is except for the long ride back trying to rush to get here in time for school to start and my purse getting stolen in Nashville. We actually got in Thursday, but it has been nuts here with the kids starting school tomorrow.

I can't wait to plan next years adventure, though I don't think we shall go quite so far. All told we traveled just over 7100 miles and went through 26 states. Still wasn't long enough. There was so much more to see. My favorite parts were visiting family and friends not seen for way too long and the Smithsonian.

On school notes, All 3 of my oldest will be on the same schedule for teh most part beginning tomorrow. That is a nice change of the odd track thing. I am excited that Cait's new school seems really great. She is not nervous at all little bugger. I can't sleep and she had no problem what so ever. It will hit her tomorrow. I am crossing my fingers that we get all good teachers this year. I am also hoping something works out to put Dave in something a couple days a week.

I don't think Mike's teachers have been apprised of his 504 or needs. However, her dd was killed in an accident early this summer, so I am just hoping she is doing well and thought and prayers with her. Cait's principal seems nice and took time to meet with us before our vacation. The new district program specialist called me last week to meet with us at school tomorrow morning. I hear she is wonderful. Emily is a peach and I am really looking forward to the "normal" parent experiences with school and parent teacher meetings, play dates without explaining why so and so is just a bit different.

That's it in a nutshell and I need to try to get some sleep.

WHOOOOO HOOOOOO!! Renee is back!! (doin the happy dance now). We missed you, Sweety!

I'm glad to hear that you guys had fun over all. Did you get any pictures? (hee hee) Though I am sorry to hear about your purse getting stolen, that part really sucks. Did you loose anything major? I hope not.

I can't wait to hear more about your trip. For the last month I've been thinking "I wonder what wonderful trouble Renee is getting into right now?" LOL. (wink)

Welcome home, Honey!!

hi Renee, boy you sure did cover some miles!! I read your one post that you sent out during your trip. You have alot of patience to spend that amount of time in the car with 4 kids. How did you lose your purse in Nashville? We just got back from 2 wks in Pa. seeing my family. We flew though. We had alot of R&R & did do some fun things like a family reunion & swimming, bowling, miniature golf, and an amusement park! The dd's were so good. Sarah did her usual wandering around @ the reunion and at my dad's house. I had to keep checking on her outside. She is very much at ease with the family but not very social. All in all it was fun. Good luck with your new school yr. I hope it goes better this yr. My dd's start Sept. 2nd. We are going to Vegas to see my new neice on sat. I'm still in the vacation mode & can't think about school. Glad you are back take Care...Mary Ann
