I'm back! FYI: This post will be mostly non-stamping related since I have only been able to stamp ONCE since I left! :)

My family (hubby & 3 kids) and I went on a weeklong trip to visit friends and family. First, we traveled to Greenville, SC for a memorial for a dear missionary friend of ours who passed away. She's the person who first introduced me and my husband. What an inspiration she was -- after 30 years of teaching, she "retired" to do missionary work for about another 20 in Haiti (that's where my hubby and I met her when we were missionaries in Haiti). She had recenly "retired" again to the states, and after a short time, became ill and passed away. We will miss her dearly.

Then we travelled over to St. Louis to spend time with family. The kids loved seeing all their relatives and going to the zoo, Grant's Farm, etc. It really was a great trip -- exhausting, but wonderful.

After a 15+ hour drive home last Friday, I've been "vegging out" with the kids (and avoiding the pile of laundry, cleaning, etc. that needs to be done!). This morning we head off to church, so after that maybe I can post some cards.

So what do you do for your vacations? Do you sightsee/go to amusement parks? Do you visit family? Do humanitarian work? Do you work on house projects? Do you do "nothing"? I'd love to hear what you all do if you'll post it here.

Hey Kelly,

Thanks for stopping by. We just moved from the Quantico area. Can't say that I miss the traffic. lol! ;)

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. It sounds like she lived a wonderful life serving the Lord.
