I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I last posted! We’ve been very busy. My mom came to town for a visit and we had a wonderful time with her.
We took her to church, up to the White Mountains, shopping at the outlet stores, we went hiking on a beautiful trail near our house, we did all sorts of things. Mom was wonderful and helped me out a ton – everything from making the kids lunch to picking up and doing the dishes. I’m tired but I don’t feel like I overdid it – thanks to Mom’s help.
The kids had a wonderful time with Grandma and really love her. I was so thrilled. Nathan had so much fun playing games with Grandma and doing all sorts of other things and Emily just loved her “G-ma” (she kept changing what she called “Grandma” but it was really cute and definitely obvious who she was talking about.)
Mom left today. She’s going to visit a few close friends before flying back to Texas tomorrow. We all miss her and hope and pray that she will be able to come visit us again soon. The Lord was amazing and provided this unexpected visit, maybe He will see fit to allow another visit this summer. And maybe my sister and dad can come too! I’d love for my all of us – including my 2 brothers – to be able to get together, but I know that’s not likely to happen with my brothers working and being in school. But you never know what the Lord will do!
Anyways, here’s a few pictures from the past week:
I love you very much, Mom, and I’m so thankful you were able to come!
Edited to Add: I’m not sure why some of the pictures are not showing up – you may see some tiny rectangular boxes in their places. It’s really weird. Lately it seems if I upload anything directly from Picasa onto here (a little easier than manually uploading them directly) sometimes they only “show” for a couple hours and then turn into empty boxes. So odd. Anyways I am working on this problem – or I should say my techy husband is. 😉
