We had a very nice and wonderful day today. The girls were with us, and that includes Linda; we went to visit with David, Miriam and their two boys, our grandsons; and, it wasn't very bad traffic going either way, so we weren't on the road any longer than necessary.

Originally we had planned on going to a park and letting the kids play there, but they were having so much fun at the house we just decided to stay there. Jason made himself comfortable on the couch, and we effectively stayed in the one room. There is a smaller "play room" off the larger main room, and the kids spent a good amount of time there. We also spent some time out on the patio where Dylan was very excited to share and show his two cousins all the great things he had and could do with a wagon. David brought out a cardboard box, with some holes cut out and asked who wanted to be a robot, and of course all of them did. Then almost as fast, their attention jumped to doing other things. Jackie was particularly interested in  a basketball, and tossing it up to the hoop (the hoop was about five feet off the ground. She made every basket. Finally Stacy and Dylan made a great team playing with Dylan's T-ball set up. Neither of them knew exactly how to swing the bat (even after Miriam attempted to show them), but that was okay, they had fun anyway and that's what really mattered.

We had a nice lunch with all of us in the main room and then we all took a nap. I stayed down with Jason, as I am still a bit of a worry wart. Stacy made a little sleep area for herself in a "tent" that Dylan had set up; Linda was upstairs with Jackie; and both Dylan and Ethan were in their beds (even David and Miriam got a chance to get some rest). It was 100% fun and play time for the kids, and they managed to do it was some very simple toys, none of which were electronic. After the nap there was a little play, then some time out back, where Dylan and Stacy helped Grandpa pick some tomatoes (we brought some home with us). David has made some simple changes to his yard and it is much more family friendly now, so that the kids can run around. Even Gracie, Jason's service dog, was able to do a little running around, and you could tell she was having a great time. The only concern we had was that David has a cat, Luna, and she is not dog friendly. It all worked out, and no one was worse for the wear.

The day had to come to an end, and we needed to get back before 21:00 (9:00pm), as we didn't want to have the girls up too late. We did stop to eat dinner at Mimi's restaurant, though that wasn't the original plan. It was decided, while we drove that we needed to feed the girls before it got too late, and then we saw Mimi's. The girls got down for the night, and the rest of us also got ready for bed. I am up finishing the bog, and then I'm going to bed. I intend to go for a nice early bike ride tomorrow, and Jason and Linda both said they hope they can sleep in some. For me, an early bike ride means out before 08:00 and sleeping in to them mean not having to be up until after 08:30. With as much as the girls did today I would be surprised if they get up earlier than that. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers and take care and stay positive.

  1. Glad you had such a great day!
    We have an anchor in every storm! Praying!
    Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
