    Well, Joshua is home. He made it back safely from Italy on Monday night. I was so glad to see him he almost turned blue when I hugged him. He had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about history in Italy. He took about 400 pictures of all of the sites that he saw. I know this is only the first of many times he will be away from home, but that didn’t make it any easier. I’m sure glad I have three years to prepare for him to go to college. Maybe he’ll choose Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    As I write this the sun is shining beautifully and it looks warm outside, but I think it is a bit chilly according to the thermometer. Just eight or nine more days until spring officially is here.
