Tubing at Deep Creek North Carolina

How many tubes do you think you could fit on your car?

The pictures say it all.  We had a great time.  The mountains are beautiful and we would love to sell out and move there.  Just one small problem with that is no jobs.  So much of the area is dependent on seasonal tourists.

Now we are back to our busy lives.  Today all the kids and myself will be in class.  I hope that it is a good year for everyone.  I half expected to get a call for foster care over the weekend since we always seem to get calls at times when we are not available.  However, we didn't. Our home has not been empty this long since we first started doing foster care.  I know that our county certified a lot of new homes over the summer so we have more homes then we have ever had before here.  That is a good thing, it just means a lot of empty homes.  I should just enjoy the break but I would like to get a call!

Well, I am off to do laundry.  Funny how that pile never seems to shrink.


  1. You have had a long break from care. I thought maybe you'd requested it. I know we were lucky to have two days between calls. Of course now we can't even get certified.

    I hope school is going well for you!

  2. I love all the photos! The one of your husband in his tube is fabulous! I think it is funny that you call your home "empty". It looks so full and busy and happy. Best Wishes for a good school year.

  3. Our home is full. However, when you have a 1 and 2 year old in your home for 9 months and then suddenly they are gone a big hole is left behind. We have empty carseats, beds and spaces in our hearts.
