Tom and I took care of Levi, Silas and Isaac
while Lulu flew back East for her back surgery.
Kimmy, Mark, Ila May and Nathan, were with
Lulu on this journey.
The boys got to choose where
they wanted to sleep.
So they chose "Papa's" office.
Here are a few things that we did during their stay.
We did Homeschool
They came up with creative ways of playing.
Laundry room, watching the clothes go around and around.
Coffee table cars.
In an empty tub with cars.
We kept Kimmy's daily schedule.
which included Track practice, twice.
Isaac and I walked the track, while Levi and Silas
I always had a helper in the kitchen!
Silas loves my Taco Rice Casserole
and Silas helped me make a huge batch.
The reward, eating what they made.
Levi was closely supervised by Silas.
And more rewards!
Because the boys live so close to us,
we would go back and forth to their home.
After breakfast at our home, we'd
go down to theirs to feed the bunnies, chickens and cat.
We had, Home school, down there and lunch.
Followed by a nap for Issac.
This day, we ate lunch outside.
Levi is reading so well.
I had him read to me as much as possible.
I don't know if he enjoyed it
as much as I did!
We took them to church, twice, during their stay.
Here's proof that Tom and I could do it;
get ourselves ready,
get breakfast for 3 boys,
get 3 sets teeth brushed,
get 3 boys dressed,
get 3 heads of hair combed,
be on time for church!
One of our last days together, Levi
picked me some flowers.
My heart just melted.
Lulu's surgery went really well.
Please check out Kimmy's blog
for Lulu's updated progress.
Monday evening, we all drove to the airport,
to pick Lulu and family up!
The excitement was overwhelming!
Words can't even describe the moment
they came in sight.
The waiting boys!
Even friends came to support
Lulu and family.
But the waiting was taking so long,
because Lulu was in a wheelchair,
they were the last to disembark.
Here's Isaac seeing them from
The doors opened and the hugging began!
My picture taking wasn't the best
because I was crying and hugging
and just so thrilled to see them!
Lulu's friend came to wish her
a welcome back home.
It was great to have so many helpers with
