Day 10

Larry and his Dad took the kids ice skating last night in Bowie and I had some quiet time in the house. Yay for quiet time!

Today we are just relaxing at the house again. It's much needed after all the running around we did, and we truly need some rest -- at least I do!

I miss our dog Maddie terribly. Thankfully Cathy has posted a lot of photos. She also just took her for a "spa day". I thought that was so incredibly thoughtful. I miss our friends and our church too, of course. We are excited to be back this weekend but I am savoring my last moments of rest. We will start on the trip home tomorrow but are meeting my (birth) mother Sally and her husband Bob ("Pop Pop Bob" as we call him), and my sister Shari, for dinner on the way back home. I am really looking forward to seeing them. I saw Shari on her visit to Tampa in May however it's been quite a while since I've seen Mom Sally as I call her, and Bob. Our trip home will take us longer as we are taking our time and stopping overnight on the way back. I hate driving straight through and usually we only drive straight through when we are going somewhere, not coming back. We drove straight on the way there so we'd have more time with Mike and Donna in Ohio. (Who I miss very much, by the way.)

Today we are putzing around the house and Casey will have to leave us and fly back to Tampa late this afternoon. I am just coming on line for a few short moments amidst my rest (from everything, even the computer these past 10 days, with the exception of 5-10 minutes a day) to share these photos with you of our last few days travel...

Inside Washington Memorial Chapel; I love this place. It always holds great memories for me of our time at school.
