Tess: "I'm walking on the highway!"
me: "Oh yes, doesn't it make you feel strong and powerful?"
Tess: "Well, of course it makes me feel strong and powerful, because I am. DUH."

brand new day
That's today, all you lovely people--a brand new day. Even though a trapshoot tournament is going on for me to work super long days. Even though I'm rather exhausted from my [awesome, wonderful, beautiful, much-loved, best-friend-of-an-older] sister's 18th birthday--which was on Monday but the celebration kinda stretched itself out. Even though vacation is ended and now I have only memories to look back to. Even though I feel like I haven't been home for a full month, and for the most part, it's true.
But I'm home. Working trapshoots, as busy as ever...but home. And it's good. Oh so very good. Our vacation was wonderful and stupendous and full of good memories (even though it had it's...moments, as all family vacations must). It was long...seventeen days long, and we saw so many cool things, went to so many beautiful places, and met so many amazing people.
This gives account for my long absence, as you may or may not have noticed, and the busyness of my schedule gives account for this post not being longer and laden with photos. Don't worry--those things will come soon. But know that here I am, safe and sound and sleepy.
And just to make this not a totally boring post, I shall include a quote from Tess, my humorous 8-year-old sister, as we were walking on a bridge over a highway.
Hahahhaaa I love her.
So what has everyone else been up to? School preparations (nonononoNOOOO!)...socializing...or vacationing like me? I feel like I've been gone so long and have so much to catch up on...
