This morning, the 6th grader and I returned from our week long trip to Kenya. There is a pile of dirty clothes rivaling Kilimanjaro in the laundry room and (thankfully) our new washing machine will be installed later today. We had an amazing time and I hope to get busy editing pics and blogging about our adventures as soon as I get things settled here at home, fun things like unpacking and washing and getting back into the groove of school.
Until then, here is one of my favorite pics from our photo safari. This was taken in the Maasai Mara on one of our early morning game drives as the sun was rising. The hot air balloons were unexpected, but it seems they're very popular as evidenced by the 6-7 we saw rising in the early morning light for those folks who wanted a different perspective of the local scenery and critters.
