Dave has been out of town since Thursday and boy, are we ready to see him today! I think this is the first time since we have 3 kids that he has been away from us. I guess I do go away without him, but then I have my family around so it’s not 24/7 uninterrupted neediness directed at me. Somehow even after putting them to bed and having them fall asleep, I ended up with one or more kids in my bed before morning… not that I was sorry for the company, to be honest!
Anway – it’s been busy, and today we are cleaning up from our big weekend. I actually did get a bit of sewing done – made myself a maternity dress for church and I finally (now that it’s almost August ) started on the girls’ summer dresses which I bought fabric for in February! (I will post pics when they are done!)
Speaking of traveling, we are going to visit my folks for a while, and we are leaving in less than 2 weeks. So that is the answer to all you who keep asking me when I’m coming to visit! I will have the car, so line up your bids for visitations and we will try to make the rounds this time. I guess I will be spending the next week or so just getting ready for the trek. It’s quite an ordeal for me, if only mentally, to get ready for a big trip like that. But we only do our pilgrimage twice a year now, so it’s worth it.
Can you believe I haven’t even seen Soren yet this morning? Miriam gave him his bottle for me and when I went to check on him he was sleeping again! I hear him cooing on the monitor so I better go bring him down now.
