Wow - it feels like FOREVER since I've posted anything...did anyone miss me? I missed you all. I am trying to catch up on everyone's wonderful posts, but I would literally have to sit at my computer ALL day. Stop writing so much interesting stuff so I can get a life!

I've been at the beach - but before you think I've become a total beach bum, you must know that I am still keeping it "educational". While we were at the beach, we took a "field trip" to Ft. Fisher.

We drove to Southport, NC, which is the cutest little town (I really must find some time to go back in the fall, when it's cooler, and explore this little antique infested, cafe on every corner, town!) We took the 30 minute ferry ride across to Ft. Fisher, NC, known for it's battle during the Civil War.

We spent time in the Civil War Museum, bought hats from the gift shop. My husband was very bothered by the "house divided", because one of our sons wanted a Union hat, while the other wanted a confederate. I guess we got a little taste of what it must have been like back in those days to have "brother against brother" in some cases.

I would have taken more pictures outside of the actual fort, but my camera battery ran out. I forgot to charge it.

They will at least have something to write about when they go back to school and the teacher makes them give a report on what they did this summer. I have to admit, I learned some things as well.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!


  1. Ha. A house divided.

    Sounds like you enjoyed it.

    And yes, I missed you! See you tomorrow Chickie!

  2. Welcome home, glad you enjoyed your trip.

  3. I'm glad you had a great time. We love Southport, too. I'm hoping we can make another trip this fall.

  4. Love you my friend. Sooo glad that you're back.

    Sounds like you had fun with your family and that's so wonderful.

    Will be back to visit soon.
