Let me just tell you about my day. Oh what a day it was. It was filled with battles of all sorts. It started out with the Battle of The Dew. My sister and her girls came up and we all decided to spend the day traipsing through history. And she brought me an ICE COLD Diet Mtn. Dew. My most favorite drink. It was a battle to keep my emotions in check. I could have cried. She is the absolute best sister ever. I hadn’t had a Dew in about 2 or 3 days. Golly I love that gal!
THEN, we started our journey. A journey that led us through the Civil War Battlefields of Chickamauga. The Chickamauga Battlefields are full of history. There are tons of monuments to document the battles that were fought there and the men who fought gallantly for this great Nation that we call home.
We started at the Visitor’s Center and got our map and game plan together. We were all geared up for a day full of warmth and sunshine. Fun. Learning. Adventures.
We visited monuments. We learned about the battle waged here. We learned about some of the people who lost their lives here. We learned that this battle was unlike most. Most of the battles of the Civil War were waged in open fields. This battle was waged in the forests.
We learned about the Windsor Tower. It is a really tall tower. The kids all climbed up to the top, and they probably spit off it if I know this bunch. They are a rowdy bunch.
So rowdy in fact that we had to lock a couple of them up in the tower.
Then my afternoon was filled with battles here at home. Tate wanted to start our compost bin. I wanted to lay on the couch. Then, I got the news. My Mother-In-Law will not be able to make it out for graduation after all. It was truly a battle to keep my emotions in check. I now don’t have to scramble to get my house in order. It will happen when it happens now. Cause everyone here comes to eat and visit, they could care less what my house looks like. And since I have a cat puke stain in my carpet, laundry piled to the ceiling and dishes multiplying as we speak…no unusual visitors that would care how my house looks is a REALLY, REALLY good thing!
