snapshots from gooney road – 19 aug 2014

Work and school. Midday, I picked Camille up from the high school and took her to the doctor. It is so much easier to have the girls’ doctors here in Decatur! Chloe walked to her flute lesson. Rob and I went to the high school for curriculum night. Chloe made scalloped potatoes for dinner.

Barbara made a big breakfast. We took care of things around the cabin and packed, then headed into town for a walk and some shopping. We drove Phelix home and went out to eat at Chloe’s favorite place, where she declared the corn chowder to get her “stamp of approval”. We headed back to the cabin, packed up, headed home and took care of chores around the house.
