My intention was to blog at least a little during our vacation, but that didn’t happen. So today I’m going to post a few photos, and then I’ll get back on track next week with a full update on James’ evaluation at The Kennedy Krieger Institute. (It was even better than I hoped!)
We began our trip by spending a week in Virginia with some of my family. Sadly, I didn’t realize until I was home how few photos I took. But, we have wonderful memories of our time in the country, and loved seeing so many people there. It was the perfect start to our little adventure.
From Virginia we took a train ride up to Baltimore where we met up with my youngest brother. So thankful he came down from Vermont to help me out. We had lots of fun exploring the city together. James attended his first baseball game, we ate lots of great food, and James had his evaluation at The Kennedy Krieger Institute.
And then we made our way to Vermont. It was so good to be home again. I was filled with such a feeling of peace while I was there. I didn’t realize how much I missed being home, being close to my family, and being in the beautiful surroundings I was lucky enough to grow up in. I’m looking forward to more frequent trips back home, and if anyone knows how to get a Texan out of Texas let me know – I’d love to be living in the northeast again! Until then I settle for lots of visits.
The time away passed much too quickly, as it always does. As much as I loved being up north, it’s good to be back in Dallas, and good for James to be back in a normal routine. He has lots of appointments coming up, a birthday, and school starting at the end of August. A few new things are on the horizon for both of us, and I’m kind of excited to get them underway. Once again, we’re looking forward to all that lies ahead!
