Saturday I have a few things to do around the house before Mass in the late afternoon. After Mass, Steve and I are going to his brother's house for a fun Sibling Night! Steve's brother's wife arranged a fun night of snacks and games with all of the siblings in their family. There will be fourteen of us in all. And I have to tell you, Steve's family gets along better than any family I have ever known. Not only do many of them work together, they socialize and are very close friends with each other. Should be a fun night. : )
Sunday is all about football in this house! Our Steelers are still playing and we will be cheering! And eating all kinds of yummy football food. I am wondering if my friend Beth and I should have a friendly bet, since her family is all about the Patriots! What do you say, Beth?!
So that is what is happening in our part of the world. And this is what happened this past week in our country home...
Saturday night we went out dinner at a favorite place...Yep...Pizza Hut...to celebrate one more meal with Madison and Nicolas while they were still on this side of the ocean...
Margie and Chris and my mom joined us.
And on another note...their Taco Pizza is AMAZING.
Sunday night, Peyton made a delicious apple pie for dessert.
And it was good.
Monday came quickly.
Flynn was so happy to ride with Steve and I while we drove Madison and Nicolas to the train station.
And I was happy to watch as my firstborn helped my baby tie her shoes.
Life is beautiful, isn't it?
Madison and I passing the time as we awaited for the train.
She needed brown Uggs and I like her grey ones.
So. We switched. : )
Soon it was time for goodbyes...
And that was rough.
But we were brave.
And then...they were gone.
Thank you all so much for the prayers.
We felt them.
And then it was back to our cozy little classroom...
Where we have a new friend who helps us read fun little stories..
And where we learn and laugh and talk to Madison on the phone several times a day together.
And it is good.
Have a cozy weekend, my friends!
Thanks for visiting!
