The kids and I went to North Carolina for my brother's wedding. I have the cutest sister-in-law ever. It's okay to be jealous.
Extended family started trickling in on Sunday, and we had the best week. Or at least I had the best week I can't really speak for them. A lot of work went into getting the patio ready for the rehearsal dinner. My aunt and mom had Amelia and Owen raking leaves and pouring mulch. My dad was doing finishing touches on the added room in the basement. I was told Owen wimped out, but Amelia really pulled her own weight.
My mom and aunt also let me head to Concord so that I could attend the Kindred Gathering at the CiRCE Institute. It kinda felt like I was sitting with celebrities. Or people who knew celebrities. I may or may not have had a few glasses of wine when I got home because I got chatty and weird like I tend to do. My weirdness aside, it was great! Kindred Gathering is a book club that was reviewing Consider This by Karen Glass. I bought the book and Teaching from Rest: A Homeschooler's Guide to Unshakable Peace by Sarah Mackenzie while I was there. So stoked to begin both books.

Thursday more people arrived and that evening the rain began. I think it is still raining. It let up just enough for the rehearsal so that eating outside, under canopies, wasn't completely miserable. The day of the wedding it was raining. My cousin did my hair and it looked AWESOME. And I did NOT get a picture!!! Seriously with my hair and my fake eyelashes, I felt like a rock star.
The wedding was beautiful. We had a wonderful time. I just wish it could have lasted longer and that I had gotten more pictures. But here's some of them...though I'm sure you saw them on Facebook.

Until next time friends. I have some fun pictures from our nature walk today. I'm sure you're on the edge of your seats.
