After a trip east with my mom, which I loved, and a trip to HomeTown that was really fun, I’m ready to be in SmallTown for a bit. This month marks 4 years since the moving truck delivered all our stuff to our new home. It’s been a wild ride but I find myself more settled here.
It gets harder and harder to want to spend the hours in the car to visit family around the state. We’ve carved out a place for ourselves here and really enjoy just living the ordinary life of small town folk.
My sister and her kids are here visiting this weekend. Tomorrow we’ll take a drive to Itasca State Park for some hiking and a picnic. By the time we get back here my niece and nephew will be able to say they walked across the Mighty Mississippi River. I’m looking forward to a relaxing day with family. I’ll cross the river on those slippery rocks too, hoping not to fall in again.
Life is good.
