Playing Catch-up

I’m way behind on my blog posts.  We just got back from our summer trip to the U.S. after spending over 2 months back west.  It’s always great to visit family and spend time with our American friends, but I have to admit that I am relieved to be home in Hong Kong in my own bed and back into a regular routine.

We did some serious road-tripping while we were there.  So, in order to stay relevant I’m going to fast forward to share our summer adventures and then I’ll go back later to blog about our trips last spring.  I never really intended this to be a travel blog when I started out, but I suppose it has evolved into mostly that.  Traveling is definitely one of the major blessings we enjoy from homeschooling since we aren’t really tied down by conventional school schedules.

We started our summer visiting family and friends in Florida.  We visited my dad (Lolo and his wife, Lola Sonia) in Pensacola…



and Benjy’s mom and her husband, Rob…



We got to hang out with my Tita Luz and my cousin Maya along with her beautiful twin girls…

…and hung out with my mom, who managed to talk one of her friends into driving her all the way from Jacksonville to Pensacola.


Aaron did some fishing with Lolo (of course)….

They did quite well.

The kids also spent a week at camp Cedar Cliff in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina.


They had a blast!


Aaron got to hang out for a week with 4 of his best buds from Jacksonville.


And Webley made some new gal pals.


It was an awesome way to start the summer.
