"We had a great day, it was a super way... to spend... some time together"
5 extra awesome mom points for anyone that can tell me what kids show that is from (:
But seriously, we had a great day. Today was my mom's last day off work after having surgery a few weeks ago, so we celebrated her health and spent the day together with her at the same time. My mama even treated me to lunch at Bob Evans. So good. We picked up some things we needed, including some new fleece pajams for the boys (this mama totally underestimated how cold fall, Ohio nights are in a country home). Though the nights are colder than expected, I am so very happy to be home, in my mama and stepdad's house. We are surrounded by open air, back roads, woods, animals, farms... I love it (: I always feel more like myself during/after a visit back home. It grounds me, in a way. I guess "back to my roots" isn't such a silly saying after all.
The boys also have a blast here, Jack especially. He spent 3 hours just playing outside, running, jumping, digging, riding, giggling. It melted my heart to see him so very happy after everything he's been going through lately.
He mostly played by himself or with the dogs outside while waiting for Avery to get home from school. But when he wanted a playmate, Nan wasn't far behind.
We also were lucky enough to receive visits from aunt Kathy and Jenna today. It's always good to catch up with aunt Kathy and Jenna has been one of my very best friends since the 10th grade... so most the time we just pick up where we left off last time I was home visiting (:
We got a message from daddy that said he's on the move again, so please say a prayer for safe travels for him. Other than that we didn't do much of anything today, the boys enjoyed themselves, I crocheted for an hour or more straight today (an accomplishment in itself with my children). And I got to meet and hang out with this adorable, little guy.
His name is Walter (: He is my mama's newest addition to her "pack". He is a yorkie/poodle puppy and is "three kinds of crazy" as Jack called him this morning. Haha. But he's sooooo cute and sweet. How could you not love that face?
I'm off to bed to cross my fingers and toes that I wake up to a message or call from across the globe (:
