Monday morning Leah and I got up at 4:15.
She got ready quickly and I dropped her off at Jackson's for the ride to the airport. The junior high kids were flying to San Diego for their marine biology trip. I have been pretty nervous about this trip. I found a site where I could track her flight, and someone had put up a picture of the group right before they boarded. Also one of the teachers is giving us daily updates. This has all helped to ease my mind. Sounds like they are having a wonderful time so far. I can't wait to see her Friday. Monday the other kids were off school. We got a few chores done and hung out. After dinner Dave was determined to get the tile done. Then Cora wanted to show him the song she had been practicing all day. This lead to a few hours of playing together. It was so fun to listen. Dave was enjoying it a lot. He kept saying one more song...just one more. At nine it was time to get everyone to bed. I know things need to get done around here, but I love that Dave loves his kids and is so proud of what they accomplish.
My parents had brought up their quilting frames for me to borrow. As Cora and Dave were jammin',I was trying to get this quilt off. Blake was so bored that I talked him into helping me. He wanted to make sure everyone knew he was really bored, that is the only reason he was doing girl stuff.
He only did about 8, but it was fun while it lasted. I'm hoping to get the girls bed spreads and pillows all finished before Leah returns.
