Well, here I am again. Has it really been since May? It's been a busy time and, I suppose, that is mostly my reason. Still, shortly after my last post, my Daddy had a stroke. I think that was a hard word for me to type out. It is a scary word and the sort of thing I don't share much of in this space. And, I guess I don't need to share it at all. But I couldn't write about it and I sort of couldn't write about anything else without saying it. I won't go into all the details, but I will say that Dad is doing well and is well on his way to a full recovery. We all felt very blessed that it wasn't any worse than it was. He had no cognitive damage and really only lost coordination in one leg. Even that has come back around and I thank God that I am able to say that.
The rest of life was a whirlwind of the end of school, gearing up for VBS, and all the usual nonsense of life with three active kiddos.
Ellerie graduated from preschool
I recovered my kitchen chairs
Cal made a boat for Floatilla at school.
We played baseball and played with friends.
And took pictures of new brothers.
We (rather, I) survived VBS week and really enjoyed it.
Now, I am finally unburying myself from the wreckage of these busy days. Piles of laundry and dirty dishes are fading and even some of the clutter. I am keeping busy to catch up, but also to avoid thinking TOO much about my oldest being away at camp for the first time. AHEM.
