It has been a quiet week here at the T’s house. Tim left last Saturday evening for Costa Rica. Although they were pretty much “out of touch” (no cell phones were allowed and there was limited computer access for them) we did get an email last night which made my day. He said he had an “excellent” week and was anxious to make sure that we brought clean clothes, his shower stuff and his phone when we pick him up tomorrow evening. Today, as a finale for their trip, they are white water rafting for the day. They also hiked at La Fortuna National Park and camped there. I am sure that it will be a trip he will remember.

It’s amazing how different the feel of the house can be when even one of us is missing. It has been quiet here for sure especially since TJ left on Saturday for a few days. Personally, I have had a lot of uninterrupted time, since there were no voice lessons or picking up and dropping off from work for Tim.  Tyler has been working long days at camp so it has been a very quiet house during daylight hours.

This week, though, will not be so quiet. Lots of company coming for the holiday and TJ’s party on Saturday. Busy, busy getting ready for that and picking up our little guy from the airport in Boston.

Dodging a lot of raindrops still in these parts. Hopefully, we will be all rained out for the weekend.


My youngest son is heading off on the first of his summer adventures abroad. He and a group of classmates and two teachers (about 20 total) are leaving this evening for Boston and heading to Costa Rica where they will do a service project. Since it’s not all work and no play, they will also be hiking at La Fortuna National Park (volcanos), zip lining, hanging in the hot springs and white water rafting. They are spending several days with an indigenous population where they will work on a school/playground renovation.

I wasn’t particularly concerned since the group that is sponsoring the trip is organized and sends thousands of kids all over the world on these types of expeditions. But still, as the days have grown closer and closer, a mom’s instinctive worry has began to creep in. I am fighting to keep it at bay and imagine what wonderful experiences they will have as they undertake this expedition.

Safe travels Mill River kids — have a great trip!
