On Wednesday we traveled from Asheville to Crossville, TN (just outside of Knoxville) to pick up Ada. We met Dude and Dolly at a Cracker Barrel and had a nice reunion with our little girl! We were all excited to see each other. After a quick lunch and a tearful goodbye we got back in the car and drove through Knoxville, Asheville, Hendersonville and made our way to our destination for the next two nights, Greenville, South Carolina. We spent Thursday morning exploring the downtown and really enjoyed the beautiful waterfalls that are right in the middle of downtown! We also drove around a bit, saw Bob Jones University, found a cool (temperature-wise)mall to escape into, and had a nice dinner at a yummy Mexican restaurant downtown. Friday morning we got up and got on the road and made it home by mid-afternoon. It was a long journey but a wonderful vacation. We were happy to be home but sad to see our trip end!

We have been spending the past few days in Asheville, NC enjoying life in the mountains. We have loved driving along the Blueridge Parkway and taking in the stunning views, exploring the Pisgah National Forest, visiting the Carl Sandberg house, and just hanging out, and eating well, in Asheville.

On our way from Richmond, VA to Statesville, NC we stopped at Montecello - the home of President Thomas Jefferson. It was really something to see, and we really enjoyed touring the house, and walking around the gardens.

The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America finished this morning (Friday), and so we are now officially on vacation!
After a very tiring week, but we are glad to be able to just relax for a few days. We kicked it off by visiting the College of William and Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia. It is an incredibly beautiful and historic university, and we enjoyed just walking around its campus for a couple of hours.
If Ada decides against Covenant College, this is definitely our second choice for her!
