The girls are back in school and I think we're finally getting into the swing of things once again. I have a lot of pictures to upload from the summer. I'll try to upload something new several times a week. It just seems life has become crazier than usual lately and my blog has had to take a back seat to the chaos. When I checked my e-mail this morning, there was a link to this video of Chania, Crete, from my friend Janan who is currently living there with her husband Ed. It brought back so many memories as Doug and I lived on the island only about 10 minutes from Chania for a year from Oct of 1999- Oct of 2000. I would love to go back sometime for a visit and have a chance to introduce the peanut gallery to octopus and squid (two of my favorites)! I also just melt at the thought of pictures to be taken, other delectable food to be eaten, swimming and lounging to be done, labyrinths of streets to wander, and history to be explored.
I took a ton of pictures and haven't had a chance to go through all of them yet. The kids and I have come down with a cold. The peanut gallery are all on antibiotics for ear infections and are still running low-grade fevers. We all just want to sleep...a lot.
Pictures from the rest of the trip soon along with video from a play the girls were in this summer...it's pretty stinkin' cute.
I saw a ship a-sailing,
A-sailing on the sea;
And oh, it was all laden
With pretty things for thee!
There were comfits in the cabin,
And apples in the hold;
The sails were made of silk,
And the masts were made of gold.
The four and twenty sailors,
That stood between the decks,
Were four and twenty white mice,
With chains about their necks.
The captain was a duck,
With a packet on his back;
And when the ship began to move,
The captain said, "Quack, Quack!"
