Monday night we went over and watched my girls play softball again. They did fantastic and won!
We've been working on decluttering our house and so far we've donated 12 bags of clothes! 12! We're trying to pare down, so it's not terrible to move! I can hope!
Wednesday night we went for the family night at Camp and got to see our guys and the camp! That was great! We have discovered creamy baby oil is just as magnificent as read! The mosquitos were THICK and we weren't eaten alive! Woohoo!
Friday we got to visit with my family after I sold some photography extras that I haven't used in three years. We learned more that we can do to help my Dad with his ALS. It was great to talk with Sister Kelly who so willingly came to talk to us after her husband died of ALS 3 and a half years ago! We cried, we downloaded books, we listened and we talked. It was great! Then I was super excited to get a call from my mom saying that Dad had scratched his nose! You have no idea how thrilled I was! I still am! I don't know whether to hope for continued improvement or to expect a sudden rush downhill, but for right now I'm just hoping! I like hope!
Saturday we got our boys back and I got to take a friend's family pictures! That was super fun! I love working with little kids and coaxing smiles out of them! I took some great pictures that I liked, I hope they like them as much! After the photo session I got some groceries, went home, got changed and headed to my church meeting. I love learning more about how I can be a better parent and do better as a child of God. I headed home right after, shared some pizza with my kiddos (their's got burnt, so they were dying to eat the new one Scott made for me). They have been staying up late every night this week. We'll see how vacation goes when we head out soon!
