We got back from our cruise/trip to Italy and Switzerland awhile ago, but I have not had the time or energy to write about it. I spend (waste) lots of time looking at other blogs and then think 'My blog sucks'. I am having a lot of trouble trying to figure out what the new Mac system is that doesn't have word or iphoto which I used a ton on my old (faulty) hard drive.
Anyway, we started out the trip by driving to Lucerne, Switzerland. Our hotel was on the lake and it was a beautiful view.
We only spent one night there before heading to Civitavecchia (the port outside of Rome) and spent one night there in a small bed and breakfast before boarding our ship.
Here are the kiddos with Eric at Mt Etna in Sicily. Lachlan has always loved volcanoes, so we knew this excursion was going to be a hit and it was!
Here is Eric being a dork in Athens. I'd forgotten my camera on the bus when we went to the Acropolis, so you get a picture of an Olympic stadium. You're welcome.
This statue in the streets of Athens is made up of glass plates. Very interesting.
I've got a ton of pictures to post, but I need to weed through them a bit. The kids are doing great. We started homeschool last Monday (this is when the American school started here, so we decided to go ahead and start as well).
