Sep22_AnnaBlue

It’s been another busy week both for me here and for Anna in New Jersey. We have a new A/C and heater now, and an A/C works a lot better than the one we had before. This is exciting. However, the whole house was turned upside down and covered in dust, and I am very happy that Anna was not here to “enjoy” this construction. Now I am trying to get this work through city inspection before everyone is back. In the meantime, Anna had a lot of fun with Babushka and Dedushka. Little Ms Social enjoyed visits and presents from many friends of my parents. There was a lot of crafting too as well a visit to the New Jersey Children Museum. Despite all the fun, Little Mouse is ready to come home. I can tell this from the fact that our phone conversations are getting longer. Two and a half weeks were long enough for all of us, and I am looking forward to having my family back together on Saturday afternoon.

I couldn't imagine two and a half weeks apart. I bet you are ready! However, I have to say, growing up I spent every summer with my grandparents and it was a wonderful experience and influenced my life in a tremendous way.

I hope everyone has a safe trip home.

oh wow that is a long time, but yes I too remember annual holidays with my grandparents. I am sure Anna has had an absolute blast. :)

That's a very cute picture of Anna. And it must be so nice to get the work on the house done while she isn't there to "enjoy" it, as you say!

Good luck with the city inspections!

I imagine all three of you are ready to be back together again - you should have a lot of stories to hear from your two travelers.

I'd be ready too. I may joke about sending them away for a long time, but I think it'd be very hard to do.

I bet you are all ready to be back together, at home and settle into your routines.

I'm impressed you got so much work done on your house in just a week! It will be fun to see what Anna gets up to once she returns.

Anna must have had so many wonderful adventures, but I know she will be super-happy to be back at home! Have a wonderful weekend!! xoxo :-)

I bet Anna was spoiled rotten when she got back:-), but in a very good way for sure!
