We had a wonderful vacation with some of the Hunt-Hendrixes. Such fun in Roma!
Our immediate family also had such a blast in Sardinia–pure joy!
We have had many, many summers with no vacation. I have worked around the clock for years and years at a time. Sometimes we have tried to take a week off, but children made it mostly work anyway. This time, it was a true shock to my system to rest, to take a vacation. It was almost startling. I am so grateful!
