    Wow, it sounds like you were pretty busy and had a great time visiting your girls. That is wonderful they are doing so well and enjoying themselves to in the process. We certainly need good teachers that really enjoy themselves while working with the kids.

    Sounds like you had a fantastic time flitting here and there and doing lots of visiting. Yes, I agree that it is probably time for you to crash. So glad you had a wonderful time on your trip.
