A visit and gone to visit

When you hang out with friends, what else would you do but

write on each other





and


braid your boyfriend's hair!

photos taken by Abbi Smith, Thanks Abbi!

The Smiths (Abbi's boyfriend's family) stopped by on their way home from Florida. The Haworths had wanted to visit with them too so they joined us for the fun. We had a really nice afternoon. Drawing on each other, doing Nic's hair, watching football and lots of talking were some of the goings on.

Then around dinnertime we said good-bye and Abbi went with them! She'll be gone for about 2 weeks. They live in the Maryland/DC area so lots of stuff to do around there! She was so excited. (me on the other hand....I'm happy for her, but I'll really miss her and I don't know what to do with myself.. all these independent kids!)

I know it's so hard when they go. I usually try and imagine them coming home and that helps. But not much!
Hugs from here and hope she has a wonderful visit.

Ya, that damn unschooling. Raising those independent, way too happy children:)

Two weeks! Ah, well, you get to hear about all the fun stuff when your girl returns.

It is good to hear about unschooling families connecting and visiting. Hope to have that one day soon. :)
