When we left Rogers, Arkansas, we headed to Dallas, Texas so I could spend the next week babysitting Jay & Amy's kids. Jay & Amy were headed to Puerto Vallarta for a relaxing week with some friends. Andy got to spend the night and some time with their kids before he headed home the next day.
Andy was using his funny voices to read to Dassie and she told him to quit. She wanted his real voice.
We got to eat dinner with the Wrights before the parents left.
See that stuff on the ground? Pollen. Stuff I'm allergic to!
Olivia, Dassie, & Addie
The next morning, the Wright parents were gone when we got up, but after breakfast, David, Ryan & Addie came! Andy got to see those grandkids, too! Which was very special since we knew they were moving to Minnesota!
Josiah, Isaac, & Ryan
David and the kids got to spend the night!
Boys showing off their new shirts.
When these girls get together, dress-up is always involved!
Saturday night was movie night.
The girls served us caterpillar soup!
Discovering new caterpillars.
Cousins being silly!
David throwing the football...
...to the guys on the trampoline.
Olivia giving one last goodbye to the family moving to Minnesota.
We spent the next three days going to school, doing homework, playing, and listening to music by the boys.
Mom told the kids if they misbehaved, there would be no presents. So we staged this photo after I'd told them I'd called mom and told them they'd misbehaved. They are good little actors.
Olivia has the kindest heart...and she's so patient. She waited for a couple of days for me to get some tape to repair her cards...patiently.
Mom & Dad got home!! (And they sure were relaxed!!) And they brought presents!
Masks & snakes for the boys...
Dresses, fan and suckers for the girls.
So glad to have mom home.
Dad played some music for us.
And the next morning, I boarded a plane to head home. What a great time with family. I'd gotten to see David's family, Zach's family & Amy's family.
And before I got home, Matt texted and asked us to meet him for lunch.
Full circle and all four kids.
I'm one blessed Mom, Gee, Gran, Guh.
