beach vacation

We spent the last week on vacation, first in Virginia Beach and then in the Outer Banks where we shared a beach house with my parents, grandmother and sister, and we couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. The weather was (mostly!) beautiful, there were no crowds, and we spent a lot of time relaxing, playing board games and hanging out at the beach. Pretty much perfect!

Now I’m in Virginia with Tsh, Jessica, Stephanie and Heidi, visiting both Colonial Williamsburg and Peace Hill Press and spending some time with Susan Wise Bauer. I don’t really enjoy traveling without my family, but this was one opportunity I couldn’t pass up; as a classical homeschooler, Susan is pretty much a rockstar in my world!

If you’re a Life Your Way subscriber, you may have noticed that you didn’t receive updates this week. Unfortunately, the feeds stopped working properly while I was on vacation, and I didn’t realize it until Thursday, but I think those are working again!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
