Busy on the porch...

I am not sure where to start. Life here on the porch has changed. I have never lived in the same town as anyone in my immediate family. I really thought it would never happen. Family and  neighbor. Will wonders never stop? My Traverse City daughter  and family  have bought a house two blocks from me! A nine year old and a five year old can run up on my porch any time they want. This is a dream come true for me.

Now for the busy. Holidays with all the family in this old house. Moving, packing, watching kids, unpacking, cleaning, making suppers and pies and driving kids to school. It has been a whirlwind of activity. I have connected with a younger crowd at school. The last time I saw many of the parents at "pick up" they were the kids being picked up!

So I hope I get back to blogging regularly and my camera. I need to stop smiling all the time...
