So, I'm not a great blogger when I travel...
I really wanted to write about each city while we were over in Europe. The truth is, we saw 61 cities and plowed through 13 countries--so I was a little more than tired at the end of each day to form a sentence, let alone a snappy post.
Even though I am home now, I'm still going to write about each of my adventures to these beautiful cities. I am going to buckle down this next week and try and write about some of my favorite places and experiences so that I never forget about this beautiful part of the world and the amazing time I had with Martin and Lily. Honestly, it was all so perfect that it's going to be hard to not post every single photo that I took while I was there.
This week I have been getting back into the groove of being responsible; like actually preparing meals, doing laundry and oh, getting little Miss Lily Faith back to school. Which leads to the photo I took of Lily's first day of school.
I loaded Lily up in her wheelchair and rolled her out to the end of our driveway to wait for the bus to come. Just as I was setting up the perfect light and getting Lily settled, the bus came 5 minutes earlier than I had planned. Lily's eyes caught sight of the school bus immediately, and all of a sudden she let out an audible squeal when the bus pulled up to the curb. I was so amazed at seeing her reaction that I forgot to take the camera out and document her delight. When I did remember, I fumbled and hurried but was only able to take one picture before I had to load her onto the bus.
I think this photo pretty much sums up her excitement.
