We are coming home soon...

Two more days of fun before two more days of long lower back is already giving me sympathy pangs! Laundry and packing the next two days and some last minute stuff. Still haven't seen Half Blood Prince...hope to sneak it in this evening after dinner out on the seacoast. The kids are spending the night at Aunt Bonnies house this evening and going shopping in Portsmouth tomorrow...they were going to go today but President Obama is in town and it will be crazy... Sam is somewhat hesitant but was bribed- there could be a midnight phone call in the works.

Tomorrow it is Chicken Tika for dinner! My favorite meal prepared by my favorite man. The evening will be wrapped up by a "bag party"...this translates into more to pack! :) Aunt Mary, Miki, Aunt Alice, Aunt Bonnie and Grammy Jo will all be there.

Will's brother Danny and his sons little Danny and Ian suprised Will for his birthday and they were all here until yesterday- we haven't seen them for four years so that was really a nice surprise.

Yesterday we went to the Odiorne Seacoast Science museum. They have a really cool touch tank for tidepool creatures so the kids get to hold sea urchins, hermit crabs and starfish. The best display was a tank with skate cases, or mermaids purse. They had them backlit so you could see the developing skates in them wiggling around...really cool! I would like to find a pair of dangling earrings shaped like skate cases in sterling...seems like they should exist out there somewhere! We also made it to the beach to find some real tide pools. The tide was coming in pretty quickly though which was fun to experience...we've always been there at low tide before.

I've been perusing the sheep blogs...missing the woolies. When we get home the timbers and wood will be ordered for the barn!!! Yeah!! The chickens will be released from their outside pen and allowed to roam freely for the first time...we'll see how the gardens fare...the veggie garden is already fenced in. I'll have to build more nest boxes when we get back too- the young girls should start laying in September. Then we will have to figure out what to do with all those eggsess...
