The grandkids (minus Zoe)
It started pouring and even turned to tiny hail before it started clearing up enough that we got into the bookstore! Phew! We headed back to the house and the GPS went nuts on me! It desperately wanted me off of the highway, so I finally gave in after getting caught in some traffic. It took us through Kansas City and Overland Park. The long way. It was not a happy time in our little car. I had Kira, Emma and Cecilia. Poor kiddos!
We left to hang out at Grammy's house for a little bit, but it started to rain and the kids were playing outside, so we had to go. They were pretty busy, so we didn't want to bother them. We went back to my parents' house and I started getting things ready to go and tried to clean the Living Room and Dining Room. The Westhoff Tornado had done its work of destruction! Anyway, we were able to leave a little after dinner and get Scott. Hurray, home again, home again!
We needed gas as soon as we got to the gas station here in Emporia and got 10 cents off! Woohoo! It was already ten cents cheaper than Olathe, so I was glad we waited! We got our house key from my friend who had fed the fish for us while we were gone and came HOME! The kids were pretty excited to be home! I know I am! It's great to "vacation" and visit with family, but it's nice to be home and back to the familiar. I'm still looking forward to the move, when I can see family and friends more often, but it's great to be back! For my last day of Break, I'm driving to Wichita to go to an author signing-Ally Carter! I'm super excited! I've got all of my books, plus my sister's! Hopefully, super cool pictures to be posted tomorrow!
