We've spent the last few weeks since G-Dub finally arrived introducing him to what we've learned about the area. Our new home. Daily learning adventures! We've unpacked more boxes. We've rearranged some things.
In our travels out and about, I snapped a few pictures on day. Blueberry fields along the road. They are beautiful in the fall with their changing leaves. I couldn't help but wonder about the people who probably hand pick these when they are ripe. I wouldn't last. Surely there's a better way. Maybe I'll find out next summer. I'll keep you posted if I do.
A furniture shopping expedition led us to Atlantic City one day. I was not impressed with Atlantic City. i'm not sure what I was expecting, but I definitely wasn't expecting the run down, slummy areas that we saw. There are all of these casinos where you can just look at the building and imagine all the millions of dollars that go through there. But, a couple of blocks down the street, there are soup kitchens with lines out the door and around the corner filled with sad and forlorn looking people. Saddened me. Further down the street were what I'd have called slums on that day but that was prior to our Philly adventure! Still, lots of poor areas not too far from the money pit casinos.
It's been good to be a family foursome again. My blog has been neglected, but thankfully, my life has been full. All is well. Until next time, hope you're doing well!
