(NOTE: I've been chronicling our summer vacation for several posts now. This is the end of that series.)
Going home is never easy. On the one hand we're all pretty much ready to see our home again and our pets but on the other hand we're leaving behind people we love. Sadness always abounds. But even though the miles ahead are long and tedious I can always things that make me smile.
Fluffy clouds (through dirty car windows)
A sleepy headed girl in a hotel room bed
A surprise pond behind a rest area, filled with fish who we all gathered at the surface
It was a great place to stretch our legs and take a few moments to breathe in the fresh air before getting back in the car to finish our journey.
Taking an impromptu photo shoot on a stairway that leads to a dead end (I have no idea why either), even though the lighting really is too bright
Getting a few smiles of these kiddos that I love so much
So much to be thankful for!
