Once we returned from the beach, we took some time to get settled and tried to ease back into our normal routines. I began to get everything ready for homeschooling and I put Emily to work on her thank you notes for all her beautiful 1st communion gifts. She took the time to make and decorate her own thank you notes which I thought was really sweet. For once, I was really on the ball and was able to print pictures of Emily with all her guests to share. Here is one she was particularly proud of.
