Taking Stock

We’re on a long road trip.  Asheville to Minneapolis.  Minneapolis to New Prague, MN.  New Prague to Small Town, SD.  Small Town to Rapid City, SD (next week).  June will be spent visiting and relaxing with family and friends.  We’ve already checked off family reunion, 1500 miles, and meeting new friends.  It’s been busy, so I’m taking stock. 

A little list of lately:

Making : plans for next school year
Cooking : a huge chicken fajita salad for my mom and dad
Drinking : cold coffee (somebody refill me please??)
Reading: House Girl. So good.  Also Mrs. Poe.  Equally as good.
Wanting: these swimsuits for my little ladies
Looking: for great quotes
