Back to "normal"

When we got back from our Florida vacation, we promptly got sick, so we spent the first few days back home curled up in beds and on couches.  David got the worst bug and has been slow in getting back on his feet...he's still wiped out every afternoon and has rest time.  (In case you wondered...Abigail is being a camel in this picture.)
When we left for vacation, we had a washer in its death throes and an oven that was limping.  When we got home, we decided to finally retire the washing machine (we've been milking it for about a year now and it was at the point where I had to help it spin and I had to hand-wring the laundry, which isn't very effective!).
So, out with the old... with the new.  It spins all by itself and the clothes are dry after only one normal dryer!!!
 My handy husband fixed the oven...dinner prep is much easier when the oven works. :)
 We are barreling along toward the end of our school year, as you can see from our sidebar.  We finished our first subject this week and the kids thoroughly enjoyed throwing away the empty books in celebration!
 Mindy is very glad to have us home...
