The kids and I took off across Virginia this weekend to take a look at the two colleges my oldest hasn't seen yet. We visited James Madison University yesterday, and George Mason University today. On the way, we visited an aunt and uncle we haven't seen for a while. It was a very pleasant trip because the kids were really good. They're becoming terrific travelers.
We left the dogs in a kennel while we traveled, and upon our return they greeted us with as much wiggling, leaping joy as if they hadn't seen us in months. Dogs are sweet that way:-).
