Whew, what a week!

We were blessed to be able to go to the Boston area to help with a Pastor/Wives Retreat for a few days.  Irvin (aka Papa) came to stay with the kids, and they enjoyed their time with him so much!  I have a feeling that maybe some funny stories will come from their week together.  Irv taught the kids some school, took them out to eat and cooked at home for them, made sure they brushed their teeth and made their beds, took them to all sort of fun places like The Dollar Store, Sonic, Wal-Mart, The Mall, Monkey Joes, etc.  He was only here four days alone with them.  Not sure they missed us for one second of those four days, but they did seem happy to see us when we finally got home Friday night.

Molly turned 7 on Saturday, so Papa took us out to eat to celebrate.  We went to My Clayground and let the kids paint some pottery.  And would you believe we got to meet Matt Redman?!  He is a Christian singer, and I love his music.  He was a really nice guy.

Molly wasn’t near as impressed as I was, but I had her pose for a picture instead of me.  I thought that might be a bit awkward.

This was when they went to Build A Bear with Papa and Uncle Jason and Aunt Merrilee.  Uncle Jason and Aunt Merrilee let them pick out a bear for their birthdays.  Fun!

Love my 7 year old Molly and 5 year old Mack!

We had fun in Boston.  I mostly just like spending time with my husband.  It doesn’t much matter where we are.

Next time I hope to stay an extra day and see the city, take a Duck Boat tour and stop at Mike’s Pastries.

But for now, it’s back to schooling and laundry and cleaning…..still as important as ever, but not always as much fun!
