Summer Vacation – The Yurt

From Odessa we would head to Vail Colorado. Phil kindly and mercifully decided to break up our drive from Odessa to Vail into two days. But we would need somewhere affordable to stay.

Through Air B&B Phil found a Yurt we could stay in for $68 a night.

Years from now we’ll be sitting around and someone will ask, “Remember that time we stayed in a Yurt?!” At least in my imagination someone’s gonna say that. I only knew what a yurt was because there was a time in my life that I was addicted to The Travel Channel. And I’ve see the documentary Babies in which one of the families from Mongolia lives in a yurt.

Before Vacay posts I had to stay somewhat current and add our Back To School details. The kids started back last Wednesday. Last Monday we got to meet all of their teachers, which for us who request the same teachers each year wasn’t that huge, though for Lily’s teacher was one none of us knew and for Ephraim who started Kindergarten this night was a bigger deal. It was fun though to see them greet their new teachers and take a look around their classrooms.

He lost his first tooth last week! The next day he lost the other one. It was a big week for this guy.

The excitement never ends at our house. It was time for haircuts for the girls and we went short! I’m so thankful for one of our church members who offers to come to our house to do this for us. That’s such a gift to this mama!
