If you know us, or perhaps can read between the lines, you will know that Tim has been gone for the entire week. He left on Sunday for a mission trip to Toronto and returned this evening. Since this is a public blog, and I care very much about the safety of my children, I don’t like to shout it from the rooftops when he isn’t here. With him being away for the week, it seemed like a convenient time for the big kids to visit my parents, leaving just me and Baby E to hold down the fort. I must say that with only the two of us in the house all week, it was really, really quiet around here! I also realized that if I don’t have anyone else to cook for, I literally do not cook. We had scrambled eggs for every dinner that we were here at home. Blessedly, we were also invited to dinner for a few nights. 🙂
Baby E was very excited to see his daddy walk in the door this evening and I know the feeling was mutual. Tomorrow we pick up the big kids and our family will all be together again. I have missed them all so much and I really can’t wait for them to be back!
This evening we got to celebrate the birthday of a very special little boy who turned 5 this past week- our dear, sweet nephew Daniel. Happy Birthday, Daniel! We love you and we had a lot of fun at your party!
