Week in Review - Home Sweet Home!

We went, we had a nice relaxing visit, and now we're home. Its always fun to go on a trip, but nothing beats coming home to your own home, and especially, your own bed!

Here are some of the highlights...

We saw so many different varieties of birds. White ones, gray ones, brown ones and many more.

Seeing an endangered gopher tortoise in the wild. This guy lives on the road my parents live on. When I was a kid, I remember standing on top of these turtles and having gopher races. If you've never seen one, they're HUGE! The things kids do...

The kids love to go swimming in my uncle's pool. We went on two different occasions this trip, and kids absolutely wore themselves did Pop Pop!

Our last morning was spent packing up, and Glen and Adam went fishing.  Check out these monster fish they caught!  Glen did catch an alligator gar which was really creepy.

Another thing the boys always look forward to doing at grandma and pop pop's house is watching pop pop's trains run.  My grandfather built this train set probably before I was born.  It has replicas of the house they lived in while they lived in Berlin during the war, as well as the house my grandfather designed and built when they moved to the United States.  Many of the trains are from Germany.  My father has been restoring the train table over the past several years since he brought it home with him.

We had such a nice time, but its good to be home.  I missed my kitty Anabelle!  Now I have to face reality and tackle a mountain of laundry and all the unpacking.  How was your week?  To see what other families have been up to this past week, check out the Week in Review post at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
