We made it to our cousins’ gorgeous home in Santa Fe. It was so fun to see their smiling faces as we drove in. We had more fun catching up, playing games and having a pots and pans dance party that I didn’t post last night. The first thing the kids said this morning was, “Can we stay here longer? We love this place. Aunt Amy and Uncle Jim are the BEST! And this place is a paradise for kids!” It really is. They’ve thought of everything.
After our fun night, we retired (a few to their cozy guest house and the rest to the RV). It was our best night sleep. It was so quiet and the cool breeze with all of the windows open was perfect.
Ruth had her final quiz this morning and she was so nervous for it. She studied all afternoon and night yesterday and was up early going over her notes. She pushed the “Submit Quiz” button and she and I were grabbing on to each other with nervous anticipation for the result—40/40! Phew! Her first high school class is in the books and she’s free for the rest of the summer. She ran to the RV to share her news with her big sister.
We’ve spent the entire morning enjoying the gorgeous views from the back deck, playing games and trip planning. Emma’s getting part of her workout in and Ruth is finishing Pride and Prejudice on Audible—she’s in heaven.
Great news on the cooktop! We had a new one delivered here and Steve was able to install it without an issue. Yay!
Good Morning, Day 7!
Yeah, for the new cooktop! So glad you were able to get it replaced for the rest of your trip.
Congrats to Emma on her A+ score. With that course behind her, I’m sure she can totally relax and enjoy the rest of her trip. Good Luck to Ruthie as she finishes up her book.
I really enjoy your vacation daily updates. This reminds me of our family of 11 vacations….although, our RV wasn’t near the luxurious size that yours is.
I’m curious to know how the 9 of you can take showers without running out of hot water. Maybe you have a special type of water heater. In my day, we had a time limit so we didn’t empty the hot water tank.
Oops! Congrats to Ruthie on her A+ grade. What a great start to High School. I’m sure Emma is very excited that Ruthie will be joining her at Guerin shortly.
Love you all safe travels , congrats Ruru so proud of you ! No better paradise then Aunt Amy and Uncle Jim’s house and Uncle Jim’s antics 😘
