Today, Mom and Dad headed back to the States. (Becky, now more than ever, a sad trombone is appropriate.) Wah, wah, wah indeed. I feel so lucky to have had a whole month with my family here. It was such a blessing to watch the cousins all play together and hang out with each other.
Yes, it's sad to have your parents leave the nest, but eventually you have to let them go so they can spread their wings and all that. I mean, you prepare them the best you can, teach them all you know, and then it's up to them, right?
And then there was the Iphone round table. What with the comparing of the apps and the connecting to the Wi-Fi and the general infatuation. I would say that, cumulatively, Iphone usage, maintenance and discussion took up about 2.75 weeks of the month altogether.
(Dad, Becky and Jason in their secret Iphone club. Snobs.)
Warm fuzzies aside, I'll miss the extra help with the kids! Jason left to take Mom and Dad to the airport at 7 this morning, so it was my first time to do the whole morning routine sans help, plus three kids. So that's getting me dressed, getting them dressed, getting them fed, lunches and backpacks packed, finding car keys and Baby Bjorn, and out the door for school. "Big school" dropoff for Ava, then "little school" for Nate. Whew! We did it, though, without any tears. And the kids didn't cry, either!
I didn't wanna come home to a family-less house, so Grace and I took ourselves to the mall for a couple hours. She is a doll, y'all! Just about ready to crack 9 pounds (4kgs!), bless her.
That's what's happening at our house. What's shakin' with you?
