And not really the worst of times, if you overlook heat stroke, a lost son, a flowergirl with the flu and two skinned knees, and a horde of relatives!
Actually, when I look that last sentence over, it actually just sounds like a typical family vacation, doesn't it?
Things are actually very fine here in Phoenix. My niece (my husband's older sister's oldest daughter, if you follow...) is getting married tomorrow, and my hubby's whole family is here to celebrate. Quite a showing! My kids adore being around their big cousins (my three are the youngest), and it's so interesting to see where John came from and commiserate with the other Ehmann wives over the particularly unique Ehmann traits. If only there were a Starbucks a bit closer, all would be just fine. :)
We're staying on here in AZ a few days to hit the Grand Canyon on Tues. Figured we should do it while we're in the area. As the kids get older, it sure gets harder to get away (as it is, we brought with us back packs full of homework... Not that it's getting done!).
I've been reading a ton and working on socks for Socktoberfest and the Sock-a-Monthalong. I did buy yarn last week (gasp!). More on that when I have my camera and can upload pics.
What are you doing this week?
