Are you all still here? I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but unfortunately the Internet ended up being a problem for our entire 3 1/2 week vacation. Overall, it was probably a good thing to have happen. I was able to close the laptop and focus just on my family for the first time since I began freelance writing full time over five years ago. The downside is that I’m behind on a few reviews I’d planned to have up by now. So, over the next few weeks, I’ll have a few more curriculum reviews to share.

The trip was fun and filled with lots of ups and downs. I tried to post some pictures periodically to Twitter and Facebook, I hope you had a chance to see some of them. {You DO follow us on Twitter and Facebook, right?} I’ll have a few fun posts highlighting new finds from our trip soon, but for today I have some highlights in pictures.

Random California


The kids loved the beach. It was their own personal sandbox, and had a playground right on the sand. They were in heaven. We got a trip in to a water park with my mom and brother {top left}, saw some pelicans and sea lions up close on the Duck Tour in Santa Barbara {middle}, and made it down to LEGOLAND with a friend from middle school and her son {bottom right}. More details soon, but I hope you have all been enjoying your summer. I’m glad to be back here with you.
