Little Things Thursday

Gah! The rush is on here.  I leave for Thailand in one week. Next Thursday morning I will be making my way to the airport to catch the very long flight to Bangkok.  We will leave Atlanta and fly 13+ hours to Seoul and then another 6 on to Bangkok.

As you can imagine, there is much to do to get ready combined with my normal work load.  I’ll be glad for those “quiet” flight hours to recharge, if that is possible.

A few scenes of life around here this past week are:


1. Ugandan paper beads from Kanzi as gifts for some of our friends in Thailand. If you are looking for some unique gifts with a cause, check them out.

2. Editing my latest photo session to 80’s music.

3. A sneak peek from the session!

4. Homeschool continues to go on.  The most challenging part of the day is teaching multiple math levels at the same time.

5. In between arguments the kids do find ways to play well together.

6. The mornings have turned cool, and have been absolutely lovely.

7. Fall was heralded with a pot of minestrone soup.

8. I finally shopped for unrestrictive flight outfits.  I found some really cozy and trendy “sweatpants” that will be perfect.  They aren’t as bad as they sound, because seriously sweatpants sound awful outside of the house, don’t they? But at the end of the day all I can think of is 21 hours… in economy.

9. 8  7 days to go.

We will be having Little Things Thursday next week, and the Thursday after that as planned. So I hope you will come keep me company while I’m jet-lagged in Bangkok!

Let’s mingle!

  5. Editing to 80s music – “oh my!” I have to admit, not everything that came from the 80s had boxy shoulders and geometric angles – but for whatever reason, that comes to mind when I reminisce of it. I am excited for you and look forward to seeing some pictures from your journey. Between now and departure time, trust me, it will all come together (the packing, the prep, the whats and whos and hows).
