Diary of a Homeschool Dad: Week 21
Happy New Year! I must have planned this out pretty well for my 21st week of the homeschool diary portion of the page to coincide with the start of '21, right? Nope, just a happy coincidence. I hope everyone reading this page had a great break and is ready to kick off an exciting year, full of optimism and promise.
Sunday - Mrs. Geographist and I were on the road, heading out to the Texas Hill Country for a little anniversary vacation. She got us reservations at a nice hillside BBQ spot in Austin for lunch, and we generally spent the day meandering up and down I-35, reminiscing about my college days in San Marcos, TX and our first few months of marriage there. We drove past our first home together, a tiny duplex on the northern edge of town, as well as an apartment complex where we'd both lived. The whole area has changed quite a bit, but there were plenty of memories. The shopping is still a highlight - two outlet malls stand side-by-side, and we certainly burned through some of our Christmas gift cards and cash! Finally we headed up the road to our hotel in Marble Falls, where we had spent our fifth anniversary.
