Yesterday I did two things I’ve never done before…..

I went to a mall (I’ve done that before) and bought two new pairs of shoes! I spent $100 on them and I’m still cringing…actually I’ve been cringing over these for at least a year. I know I’ll where them all the time as I had a pair like this that I wore all through college. They were in the budget. It’s just that I generally make my clothes and Su’s and much of what the boys wear comes from thrift stores so these seem very expensive.

Afterwards I met Anne Conder and her family in Williamsburg for an afternoon of fellowship and historical touring. They were doing a family trip to the East Coast and I was so glad to be able to meet up with them and show them some of my part of the world!

I had all the children with me and they did so well! F and Su just joined up with Anne’s children (in fact Su got lots of cuddles from Anne’s daughter, Rebekah). We did a quick walk around Colonial Williamsburg to see the highlights, then went down to Jamestown and watched the glassblowers. F and W were fascinated by that and F managed to position himself where he could watch and ask the closest glassblower lots of questions!

All four children fell asleep on the way back to Richmond, just enough of a nap to be awake to tell S all about it. I was very encouraged by how easy it was to take them on an expedition of this sort solo and by how much of what they saw they remembered!

I didn’t take the camera figuring that my hands would be too full, so visit Anne’s blog for pictures!

      How about next week? The big two will be taking classes at Maymont every morning so I’ll be pretty free between 9:30 and 11:45. I’m potty training so you’d have to come here…K
