Whew. We've just completed a whirlwind Fall Break full of fun, fun, fun!

The boys were off school for a week and a day and boy did we fill it up! Our dear friends Brian and Julie W. came for a visit all the way from Dallas. They'd been to Ireland and then popped over to Scotland for the weekend. We walked around Glasgow, shared meals at some of our favorite spots, cycled around the Isle of Cumbrae (check out that crazy 7 seater bike), visited a few sweetie shops, toured Edinburgh Castle, walked the Royal Mile, and took a drive through the Campsie Fells (the countryside).

It was such a treat to catch up with our friends and to show them a little bit of our lives here in Glasgow. Brian and Julie, thank you for taking the time to come for a wee visit!

The day they left, Mims and Gramps were scheduled to arrive. Their flight was canceled due to weather in Shreveport so they were delayed a day which we filled with laundry, errands and the cinema! Mims and Gramps left this morning after a wonderful week in Scotland. We had such a great time and I'll post about that tomorrow. Gotta run finish homework and head to fencing. More soon!
