But for now, it's July on the blog. Of course, it hit 96 degrees in Texas this week, so maybe it's not such a mental stretch.
The first stop on our trip back in time is to Puerto Rico. The kids were either at camp or the farm (having the time of their lives and not missing us a bit) and we took off to use up some hotel points and escape responsibility for a couple of days.
Although we spent just a short time in Puerto Rico, we fell in love with it.
“Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain
As we watch the weather news, with Hurricane Maria set on the same path as HurricanesHarvey and Irma which passed over Puerto Rico a few short weeks ago, we picture the places we visited and the people we met, enduring yet another catastrophic storm. Our hearts go out to them and we are reminded of the power of travel and understanding people and places that are unfamiliar to your own.
For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you'll know that we have been matching donations made to JDRF with donations for hurricane relief organizations.
We look forward to doing even more.
