A visit to the Napier home

I decided to trek down to visit my mother and siblings this morning with the girls. It is actually quite a relaxing drive if I time it right and both of the girls sleep in the car for the 40 minute trip, which was the case this morning. I went to Starbucks, got my Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and was on my way. We arrived and Pear awoke with exclamation, happy to be at "the girls'" house. The kids were doing school upon our arrival. They stopped long enough to greet us and then continued on, so as to finish in time to enjoy the outdoors on this sunshiny day! During lunch break, I joined Piper, Racer and Aspen in a game of Monopoly. Much to my dismay, we ended the game early as it was taking too long and there was more school yet to be done before the kids could go outside. I still think I would have won! Pear, Taffi and Libbi enjoyed each others company while playing with "Pet Shops", reading books and playing outside. Jovie cried, napped, played and talked while visiting. Here are some pictures of our day:

It is so cute to see all of them working on their school!

And I love the Salted Caramel HC also! It's the best!

You would have lost at monopoly for sure and I would have won! ( HA HA just kidding.) It was fun hearing Jovie talk she is getting so much bigger!

Your younger siblings are so adorable! I can't wait until Paige is older and can start more formal home schooling! I'm really looking forward to it.
Your parents' house is beautiful!
