Home



We're back from our wonderful vacation. We met friends from Richmond at their family home in Nantucket and we just couldn't have had a better time. We were 9 people in pretty tight quarters- four grown ups and five children- all under the age of 6. And you know when it just works? The kids all played well together. Friendships between the bigger kids were strenghened and friendships between the little guys were formed. The grown ups all pitched in and carried their weight. We folded each others laundry, bathed each others kids, washed each others dishes. We went to the beach and the bay. We dug mountains and tunnels out of sand. We jumped in big waves and splashed in calm waters. We went crabbing, we fed snapping turtles, we collected shells. We ate lots of yummy food- some home cooked, some not. We watched beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We watched fire works from our couch. We went on long runs. We walked through town and window shopped. We talked and we laughed. It was what summer is all about...
