Dear internet, I love you!

The past week has been really busy and I have lots of things I want to write about.  But first, my favorite thing that happened this week:  I got to meet one of my "friends in the computer" in real life!  Fellow homeschool mom blogger, Laura, from Stag Beetle Power (one of my favs!) lives on the other side of the country from me and contacted me to let me know that she was going to be visiting family about an hour from where I live, and would I like to get together for a play date?  Um, YEAH!  So we did, and it was lovely!  The boys hit it off instantly and had a blast playing together (burning off enough energy in the process that if harnessed, could've powered a moderate-sized city), and we grownups chatted nonstop the whole time.  It was great talking to somebody so like-minded, and I felt like my usual shyness was non-existent because we already knew and liked each other from reading each others' words online.  Every time I think about that day I just have to grin.  Technology is so amazing.  Thank you, mind-blowing human ingenuity - for evolving this brilliant communication tool called the internet, which facilitated the forming of a friendship!

PS.  If you get a chance, check out Stag Beetle Power - Laura writes about the many cool things they do, and she posts breathtaking pictures of Oregon scenery that make me want to pack up and move there!
