Saturday night Rick and I did a late night Walmart run while Evie stayed with the little kids. It’s amazing to me that after all these years (20 years) the simplest of chores and errands seem so wonderful when Rick is around.
Today I met Evie outside her school after play practice so I could bring her a dress for her first school dance. It was so fun to see her walking along smiling and waving at other kids. After being homeschooled her whole life I guess I had a little anxiety about how she would make the transition to public school. But she has done so well. She seems so happy and adjusted. She has lots of friends and seems to get along with most kids. I am so happy.
I hate it when Rick is out of town. I barely sleep and I just feel lost. We are blessed because he never really has to be gone that long. This last trip was 9 days and I am so glad he is back.
This girl is such a delight. Lately she has started speaking with an English accent. The big girls have been listening to an audio book with a British narrator and Ginny has picked it up. She also just had a short stint as a vegetarian. For a few weeks she asked if everything was an animal before she ate and wouldn’t eat if it was. But yesterday she decided not to be a vegetarian since there aren’t “enough choices.”
She loves dressing up and yesterday she came down stairs and announced “here comes the queen of… Florida!”
Snow day! After a 4 day weekend the kids got an extra day off. I got to sleep in and the kids ate girl scout cookies for breakfast. The girls then spent a big chunk of their day making this masterpiece. Taken with my cell phone!
Day 45 I got to spend a little time with a cute young couple from my church. They have been blessed with 3 sweet baby girls. It’s quite an undertaking for anyone and they are handing it a way that makes it seem easy!
My Valentine is out of town this year so I got to celebrate with my little valentines. Love these cuties!
Day 43 I had the privilege of watching Audrey compete in a gymnastics competition. Being on this team has been so wonderful for Audrey. I love seeing my girl so happy.
Day 42 found me sitting up waiting for Evie to get home from a party. I feel certain I have many nights like these in my future.
Because Eddie cannot stand to be away from Ginny for even a moment.
