Today, at the grocery store, Kate asked to buy some Brawny, because "it never let's you down..."
We had a great time in the mountains this year. Brooks was sick with walking pneumonia, which made our week a bit different. He ran a fever off and on for the first few days, and didn't sleep well at night (and the kids slept in our room, so we didn't sleep well either). But, by Tuesday he was feeling better. Thank goodness we had started antibiotics on Friday before.
Didn't get to Cades Cove this time, or to Gatlinburg, but we did go to the beautiful cemetery outside of Gatlinburg, picked a TON of acorns and got to hike a little. We all enjoyed it! I wish I could do more of that.
This coming week I have to work all week - so I will be T-I-R-E-D. But, I feel rejuvenated from a week away. We spent the day catching up on the house, and Scott is working on taking apart our back deck. He and a friend at work will put a new one up next weekend. Ours was past bad, with several boards rotten. We are saving a lot of money with Guy helping us. And, it will be something else to learn!
Quarterboy can't stay out of my lap since we got home. And I love it.
