Home again...

Home again, recovering from jet-lag and finally unpacked! We got home to find that our wifi router had committed suicide and we spent a lot of frustrating time trying to restore internet service. It's interesting to come face-to-face with how much we depend on the internet in our daily lives--from email to lesson preparation to blogging.


In any case, we're back now and I'm off to try to catch up with what you've been doing. I'll leave you with some eye candy from our visit with the grandkids. Enjoy!

Glad to see you're home again safe & sound. What a great looking family you have there, I'm sure you all had a wonderful time together.
No, you haven't missed my anniversary giveaway, my L post was just a tease. The giveaway is in 2 weeks time, I had to wait until you got back now didn't I?

I've had routers do that, it's a pain. Glad you had a good time and that you're back!

What a bunch of sweeties Kate. Your son is a younger Dan. Let's see, you have a violinist, a La Crosse player, what's the grandson into besides shenanigans? He's a devil, you can tell by the pics.
I'm glad you had such a lovely time. Too bad about the router, I always wonder what makes them decide to mis-behave.
Welcome home sweets.

What a wonderful life you are having! I just discovered your blog and look forward to exploring it more fully. Your stuffed zucchini recipe sounds delicious. I've never seen these small round offerings but will look for them in our summer market.

Best,
Bonnie

Nice family, Kate. The kids are really pretty and Dan (I'm assuming that's Dan) looks so nice...

Kristen said...

It looks like you had such a wonderful time! Great pictures :)
Hope you got caught up and un-jet lagged soon :)

Yes, internet problems are right up there with car problems...we've grown so dependent.

You must be so proud of your family they look lovely and happy.

Welcome back!

Welcome home, Kate!

What a beautiful family you have here!

Kate at Serendipity said...

Thank you for all your wonderful comments. We are very proud of our grandchildren!

The girls both play lacrosse, the oldest one also plays volleyball - - it's difficult when she has two games on the same day! They are also both medal-winning Irish dancers. I don't know how their mom keeps up with it all.

The youngest girl plays the viola--she told me in no uncertain terms that it was NOT a violin! And then she told me the differences between them. I didn't know! LOL, for her first concert she came out and sat in the first chair. Her parents thought she had made a mistake, but NO! She really was the first chair! They're very proud.

The youngest doesn't play any sports yet--he's only 6. He'll start first grade next year, and he's already reading a little. He's absolutely adorable. They all are.

Do I sound like a proud grandmother?
