Then I Started Staycationing in Virginia... busy days have kept me from catching up on Texan stories. Already I'm beginning staycations in Virginia. Actually I had two grand opportunities last spring that I've yet to blog about. I'm quite thrilled that I began lessons in plein air painting!!! I've always wanted to add this to my historic interpretations.
Since coming home from Texas I've been unpacking, catching up with chores around the house and of course doing a lot of work with Convention of States, which has been grand.
I keep a computer version of a sticky note on my laptop where I list all the places we want to visit. Then each week we review and vote as a family where we go. I think it will be fun to catalogue here where we actually end up going. 
I'll bump this post with each new trip announcement. When the post is written they will become linked.
