Counting Down

We're only kind of counting down.
It's hard to actually count down... when you don't actually know when he's going to leave. We know time is short, though, so we're trying to do our best to enjoy our time together.
Yesterday we finished up our touring of the historic triangle not too far away. We've visited Williamsburg a few times, visited Yorktown a while back and now we can add Jamestown to our list. Actually we visited Jamestowne, if you notice the difference.
 The boys weren't crazy about the tour but Phil and I found it really interesting. They did find ways of entertaining themselves, though. Good thing it was a really nice day!
One of the neat things is we came during a time when they actually have a live archeological dig going. Again, much more interesting to Phil and I, I think. Josh did get it, though. He was more intrigued by trying to figure out how long the lead architect had been digging then on what they had found. He's definitely our numbers guy.

Here are the boys with Pocahontas (wearing the wrong attire for the area she was from, but it was made in 1922 so you have to cut the guy a little slack about it).

It was a really nice day out yesterday. We stopped by Bass Pro on the way home and got a few more things to help Phil prepare for his time away. We even got ice cream before bedtime. Jeremiah woke up this morning and one of the first things he said was, "Thank you for taking me to that ice cream place last night." Must have made some sort of impression!
