Our first two rounds of company was GREAT... Pictures later.
Pops and my trip, while different than expected, was nice, calm and relaxing. We went to Gold Beach and stayed on the Rogue River in a great little lodge. R&R is exactly what we wanted and what we ended up getting (without the sun and warmth of Mexico).
We are gearing up again for another busy week! Today we are headed for the BIG city of Portland. Did you know that I have a bit of an obsession? Pops tells me that I am a stalker... The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, will be at Powell's Bookstore in Beaverton tonight at 6 PM and I guess I "need" to meet her so that I can meet her and not be a stalker but an IRL Friend (in real life, guys, in real life!) instead!! She'll wanna be my friend, right???
Then we have a full week of getting back on the school wagon. Thursday will be a very busy school day with a field trip in the morning with a group of homeshoolers and Bud has a Blue Knights meeting that evening.
Friday brings more company! Pops' brother, Uncle Ikey and his two oldest boys will be arriving at the airport in Portland and Pops and the big treekids will be riding up there to pick them up. Uncle Ikey is Bud's Godfather and decided it was a great idea to fly out for the weekend to help celebrate Bud's 1st Holy Communion on this coming Saturday evening with us!
SO - yes, it is a full week ahead and I hope to get some time to post pictures and tell a little bit about the craziness of the last couple weeks. As well, as all of the craziness of THIS week!
I'll be back soon~
