Brief Respite

We had the chance to take a week long family vacation on Chincoteague Island in Virginia, before 2 months of training began in North Carolina. We stopped over in St. Louis on our way east to Virginia from Kansas, and saw the Jefferson Expansion Memorial, the arch. 
We chose Chincoteague Island because it was relatively close to training, and because it's home to the wild ponies made famous in Marguerite Henry's, "Misty of Chincoteague", which we enjoyed as part of our home school curriculum. Olivia is horse crazy, she, and her sibs, all had a blast!
