When Daddy's away, Grandparents will play

My parents came for a visit since Brandon had to go to Europe for over two weeks.  My mom and dad both came on a seperate week.  It was neat for me and the kids to spend some one-on-one time with them.  Both my mom and dad got to see Owen's school.

The week with my dad consisted of many trips to the local parks!  We even spent a day at the zoo.  The boys always love getting outside and playing.  We took advantage of the nice days while we could.  My dad did some work around the house which was a really big help. 

The week with my mom included shopping, shopping and more shopping.  We didn't buy much.  We mostly just window shopped for things.   It brought back some memories of when we used to go shopping with our Gammy.  The three of us would window shop and get lunch.  My heart aches because I miss my gammy a lot.  And today, I really hate that I am so far from my mom.  Although I know God has a plan and I am trusting in him.

I am so thankful that I got to spend this precious time with my parents.  I am even more thankful that my husband is back safe and sound.

First Day of School

I know school has been in session for a month now.  I just now realized that I never did blog about Owen's first day of preschool.  That is right.  We have a school boy in the house.  He is going to Hand in Hand preschool at Generational Hope Christian Center.  It is a very small school. We really like it though.  Their main focus is Jesus.  There is also a big focus on academics.  He seems to be learning a lot.  He really likes it.  His teachers really do seem to care about him.  They are so nice.  Overall, it is a win-win situation.  Here are some pictures from the first day of school!!  (It was a pretty rainy that day!)
