If we ever wondered whether we'd put down deep roots in Tennessee, this summer made it clear that we have. We'll miss our friends and family a lot, but knowing we'll be back next summer makes it much easier.

Rarely seen - my desk is clear!
We gave away Dahlia's bunk beds. Why? Because she'll be starting high school (!) when we get back, so time for a grown-up bed!
Georgia is the best packer. Her big suitcase has all her clothes, along with two of my sweaters, my winter coat and some gloves. Her small roller bag, guarded by 'Ella', contains the things she really cares about - books. She's trusted me to carry her glass animals in my purse.
