Vacation - The Last Days

Well, in conclusion to my vacation we had a day of rest on Friday. We went through my grandparents' house and packed things we wanted to take back with us. I brought back two hand bells and a whiskey statue. We loaded the rental car up Friday night and woke up early on Saturday morning to head back. We left Fostoria, Ohio around 5:45 am and made it to Kansas City by 3:30 p.m. central time. It took us an hour to drop off the rental car and transfer everything over to our car. We made it back to Wichita by 7:30 p.m. I drove from Ohio to Kansas City and Josh drove from Kansas City to Wichita.

I had such a good time on vacation. It was nice to have my son there to enjoy my past memories and make new ones. We look forward to when we will be able to back again, perhaps in a couple of years. Heck, maybe the kid will be driving by then. I won't get ahead of myself.

We enjoyed Sunday at home resting up from our vacation and then it was back to work for me on Monday. The kid started school last Friday and just finished his first full week this week. He likes it so far but he has been unusually quiet. There are lots of kids at this school and it is the biggest school here. I hope he does alright.

Anyway, it's back to the daily work grind. I won't try and bore all of you every day with my temperamental stories about work. I'll try to change it up here and there.

Thanks for letting me show you our journey on vacation.

It was a pleasure seeing how much fun you were having.

Hope your week went well and the break helped to give you a less stressful perspective on things.
