Back Home

We had a fine trip home Thursday, though it was very long.  I gave in to the temptation to stop in Carlisle, PA to visit the Banner of Truth publishing house and bought two books for 50% off because they were slightly damaged.  We left at around 8:50 AM and got home around 8:15 PM.  It was a long day, but not a terrible one.

Yesterday was a catch-up day.  Amanda caught up on laundry.  I took care of a limb that fell off our pear tree.  I also got the van's annual inspection done.  I also find myself rebuilding the home computer yet again.  I wasn't planning on doing that nor am I very excited about it, but these things need to be done sometimes.

Not all was mundane, however.  As a family we collectively assembled Noah's Thomas table.  At first he wasn't that excited about it, but I think he may have just been overwhelmed at first.  He started using it quite a bit later in the day.  The cool thing about this table is that it will make a fine play surface for LEGOs someday too.

The other fun thing was a trip to the bowling alley.  Noah really enjoyed that, as always.  Lily gets a little frustrated because she wants to do better, but she just isn't quite strong enough yet.  We'll see how it goes as the summer progresses.  Besides that, we celebrated the end of my semester with a trip to Goodberry's.  It's hard to beat key lime as a flavor on an incredibly hot day!
