Fall break!

Peter had Monday and Tuesday off from school for fall break so I headed to Raleigh on Friday and scooped him up and gleefully brought him home!

He was excited to be home for several days where he could relax and unwind.  Adjusting to college is hard and being home for a long weekend was just what he needed.  And I will admit, it was good for my soul too. I really prefer when everyone is home under one roof. 

We didn't really have any plans this weekend. We had dinner at home on Friday evening. He really wanted to go to a Bishop football game but they had a bye this week.  Peter watched a lot of college football on TV on Saturday in addition to lunch from Bojangles which is his preferred football watching food. Sarah and a friend went to Greensboro to cheer on the Bishop Cross Country Team at a meet.

We all attended Mass together on Saturday evening and then enjoyed a delicious dinner at the 4th St. Filling Station. Later that evening we had a fire in the fire pit.

On Sunday we had lunch at mom's and watched more football. On Monday, Sarah had to go to school but Dan had taken the day off to spend some time with Peter.  The three of us had lunch at Nick's Hamburgers (so good!) and then drove to an apple orchard in Ramseur.  We were hoping to get some apple cider but they were sold out.  It was Monday and they were apparently very busy over the weekend as it is apple orchard time and only had a few gallons left.  But apparently a  mom's group visited  that morning for story time and bought all the apple cider.  Those darn story time moms!

And then on Tuesday, Dan was back to work and Peter and I finished laundry, got him packed back up, etc. and we had him back to NC State by 5:00 PM.  It was such a nice visit but it went by way too fast.

We are already looking forward to Thanksgiving break!
