Hello again! We’ve been deeply enjoying our time here in Virginia, soaking up every moment with family and with each other. Unfortunately Elliott returned to work in Sicily yesterday and I’m feeling a little lost without him. Sigh.
I have another month here in the States, so if you’re in the neighborhood… email me so we can hang out!
On Elliott’s last day here we decided to visit his mom at work. She’s an elementary school librarian, so she’s an easy grandmother to go visit! We loved the books, the bean bags, the stuffed animals, and the colorful, cozy environment of her beautiful library.
Lena also enjoyed visiting a classroom of 5th Graders that participated in a book club this past year with Marmee (as Lena calls her grandmother). She gave them all hugs and high fives before they were dismissed. Our little ham!
I love Elliott’s beard and longer hair in these photos. At work he has to be clean-shaven with a short haircut, so every time we’re on vacation he grows his beard for me!
I had to include the last photo that my father-in-law took of Lena. She bombed it by sticking her finger in her nose right in front of her smile! Good thing she’s cute.
If you haven’t yet, you might want to enter my giveaway for a child’s bike seat and helmet!
