For the last 8 years and 9 months I have had at least one of my two children at home with me. Although for 6 or so of the years I worked part time at a school, I still had half of the school day home with them. Today marks the second day with both girls in full time school. Since I am a full time domestic engineer, I have been able to keep up on all my chores and even made bread yesterday. Chris asked me why I made the bread and I said, "just because I had time." We both smiled. As most of you know, my life has been extra busy lately and now that we have no deadlines, I can take my time in getting projects done in the house. I have longed for the day that I was able to get everything done and not be so stressed on time. Now that it is here, it is nice, but I would trade it in a heartbeat to have my baby girl back home with me for at least half the day. I think of my girls constantly throughout the day, praying they are safe, learning lots and having fun. I guess I do only have 2 1/2 weeks until I will have both of my precious girls back home for three weeks. I wonder how long it will take until I will wish they were back at school (smile).

Rozell lives north of us. When Grampy and Grammy came, we called her up and met her and her family for dinner at a Mexican restaurant called The Mayan. It was really neat inside and they had live entertainment. It felt like we were at a Disney World restaurant.
Chris and Rozell haven't seen each other for 14 years.
We were on the forth floor, watching the show.
Kelly and Emma
Mary and Donna
There were three shows while we were there.
All the kids.
If you are sitting down on the couch, Madi will come with a book for you to read. She loves books, but not as much as she loves her Grampy.
Chris and Grampy played Tiger Woods Golf on the Wii. The girls played as well; they are getting good.

Grampy and Grammy jumped in to help with our house. They worked down in the basement picking up dry wall.
Books, books, and more books! Grammy and Grampy went to the library with us; I'm sure Grammy was glad to take back Nemo (she read it a lot to the girls).

At the zoo we played in Discovery Land. This was our first time in this part of the zoo. We had a lot of fun; Grampy took us on the train ride.
Grampy, and myself went up in these holes with the prairie dogs running all around. Grampy didn't see the prairie dog right behind him, until we all were pointing to turn around.
volunteer in a show near Discovery Land. She had to pretend she was different animals. She did great. After the show we got to touch an armadillo and turtle.
