Where in the world have I been? Well, I've been very busy running back and forth to the barn with Punkin for medicine, checking this, giving that, etc. Plus I've been cleaning my house in preparation for our leave-taking to Chicago, as well as making arrangements for Brooke and all the animals. And then the packing. Such fun!
Well, we left very early this morning to go to Illinois. We drove for more than 13 hours and arrived in Spring Valley to visit relatives for two days before continuing onto the Chicago area for Joshua's Pass-In-Review (Navy boot camp graduation).
It was just Steve, Morgan, and me for this trip. Brooke has a mandatory chorale weekend retreat, as well as a horse show on Sunday. Because we don't know if Josh will be off on liberty all weekend or whether he will have watch one or more of the days, we aren't sure if we'd be back in time for the horse show, so Brooke opted to stay with Nana and Papa.
Here we are with Aunt Louise and Georgia Lee. (Oh, and Marley. That's the lab!)
