We took over 370 pictures this past week on our trip to GA. We had a great time. I thought I’d blog about our first day as a start. There are so many pictures to go through so it takes some time.
We got up and headed out on Sunday morning. I believe it took us 10 hours. Everything went really well but we were glad to pull in the driveway! J
We headed for my mom’s parents house where we got to visit with them and our cousins who we hadn’t seen in eight months. That’s the longest stretch with no visit in my life. They were sick during Christmas so we didn’t get to see them. Needless to say we had a great time. I introduced them to “Les Miserable,” we watch the videos on YouTube and we learned, “On My Own,” which was really fun. I tried uploading it to YouTube but it wouldn’t work. Oh well… Our favorite character is Eponine. I love every scene that she’s in. Out of all the musicals I’ve ever seen Eponine would be the character I would most love to play. We listened to “A Little Fall of Rain”, “One Day More”, “I Dreamed a Dream,” “In My Life”…all the good ones!
We expected GA to be warm but it wasn’t. The weather was pretty cool and dreary for the majority of the week. We packed spring clothes and we wore jeans all week.
We stopped by the house where my mom's grandparents used to live.
We watched “Emma” the one with Ramola Garari (s?), it’s my favorite version. I had watched it on YT and PBS but its more fun watching movies together.
We didn’t go to bed until 3:15, and we were up again by 8:30 or 9. I don’t think this week has hit me yet. If the lack of sleep is going to hit me it usually happens a couple days later. I’m glad this week is spring break and we don’t have any ballet. We need to recuperate!
Madeline knitted us really pretty potholders; they’re so pretty that I don’t want to take the chance of messing them up! Thank-you Madeline!
Mariah painted a ceramic ballet shoe for me; I collect dance things so I like adding something new to my collection! Thank-you! XOXO
She wrote me a really sweet letter, according to her my name is “Addygil”
It was such a blast! I’m looking forward to seeing all my family again in June. It’s a long trip but it’s definitely worth it!Titus and Malchi
