October 31st, 2011.
Same costumes. Same little girls. And yet - they're changed too.
A year makes QUITE a difference. Especially when you spend it traveling the country in an RV.
I know I've been a little quiet about our experience. It's not a secret. There's just so much spinning in this mind of mine. I'm not the kind of person who processes things right away so it's hard for me to say "Here are 5 lessons we learned" or "Let me scrunch our entire year into 2 sentences."
Little bits will leak out eventually. Just not all at once.
P.S. I know it's not traditional to re-use costumes, but the girls didn't mind a bit (and they charmed everyone just the same). I'm slowly learning that "new" isn't always better. There's a certain peace that comes with being able to peek in our own closets and our own backyard...and to discover that what we already have is more than enough.
