Really, I didn't disappear off the face of the planet. What I did do was spend the past few weeks in Alberta and BC with either no internet or no time for it (usually both). But we are back to our little valley farm and trying to adjust to the time change. It was lovely to go and lovely to come home. My girls enjoyed every minute with Grandparents, cousins, aunties and uncles. And of course the animals and fun that comes that. Dan couldn't spend the entire time with us so the three girls and I braved the eleven hours plus delays of plane travel alone.
