Mail Call!

We got our first piece of mail today from Alabama!  My friend Jen, has a friend that lives in Smith's Station, Alabama who was kind enough to send the kiddos a postcard.  They were so excited.  We plotted Smith's Station on our map and talked about where it was from here.  Also had another authentic southern meal of Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Candied Carrots and Hoe Cake.  Comfort food at it's finest.

Both kiddos made it back to school today (thank goodness!) and I got to go to MOPS and catch up with some wonderful ladies.  All in all a good day.

Short today as not too much exciting to report (other than our mail!).  I know it's Thursday but it feels like a Monday.  Got to get on thinking about this weekend...

School tomorrow, storytime with the Bean and who knows what else.  Until then...

Alabama Fun Fact: The Birmingham Airport opened in 1931.  At the time of the opening, a Birmingham to Los Angeles flight took 19 hours.
 We got a package from Alaska today - can't wait to open it!

 Our first postcard!
