On another note, we have been away to FL visiting family and our friends.
I must say the boys were both good in the (longer than normal) car trip. I guess I didn't realize the full extent of tacking on an extra couple of hours when you have wee ones. Upon our arrival home, Charleston was in full bloom. It is gorgeous here this time of year, I must admit. The house is opened up to 70 degree plus weather and azaleas abound.
