Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone

Home after a lovely fall break

16th October 2007

I hate writing short posts that don’t have much in them, but I just had to check in to tell you we’ve returned from our lovely long weekend in South Carolina.  As you saw in the last post, Brian’s Saturday race was awesome – 3rd place!  But Sunday’s was even better – 2nd!!!!  It was a $$$ weekend for his racing, and in my opinion, some of his best racing ever.  I was so excited to see him do so well.  I’m sure he’ll post some more details soon. He’s mentioned in this article from the Greenville News about Saturday’s race, though. 

We spent a couple days at a bed & breakfast outside of Clemson, where Brian went to college.  We had a sweet little house all to ourselves, with horses right outside our window in a pretty field that the sun rose over in the damp morning.  Brian went for one long last ride of the season on Monday, and the kids and I played outside for most of the day.  Today we visited a waterfall, found a tunnel, shopped at Trader Joe’s and drove all the way home.  I’m so glad to be out of the car!  The kids were not as good as they have been… a little too much whining for us, but all in all, we really can’t complain.  Josiah even slept nearly 10 hours last night.  That’s a first for a night away from home! 

I hope to come back later this week to fill in a  few more details, specially about our goat adventure 🙂
