Today started with a wonderful event, as Linda flew down to be with us for the next 17 days. What really surprised me was the timing of her arrival, and our arrival at the air port. Typically I need to circle around multiple times before she comes out - this time I only had to go around once, and there she was. We got her all loaded up in the van and then we all went for breakfast (it was an early flight). Right after breakfast we headed north to go up to Oceanside so Jason could take his dog, Gracie, to her training session. The class is held at Buddy Todd park, and has all kinds of things there for the girls to do, and it gave Grandma and the girls some time to reconnect. As usual, Stacy and Jackie headed straight to the swings. Stacy road for awhile and then went on to do other things, but Jackie just couldn't get enough of the swings. I stayed with Jackie while Linda chased Stacy all around the rest of the play area - and quite a bit of the rest of the park.

Towards the end of Jason and Gracie's training session we started to walk over to where they were, and by the time we got there the head instructor was assigning their homework and stuff. She also wanted to do some work with Gracie afterward, just to check out how she has been progressing. As it turned out, there are a couple of things she needs to improve on, and so the instructor gave Jason some suggestions, and then we were able to head back home.

As it was the traffic wasn't too bad and we were back at the house a little after 13:00 (1pm), and so we put together a quick lunch for everybody, and then the girls went down for a nap. The house was pretty quiet now, so the rest of us took a nap too. When we got up, it was because Stacy and Jackie had gotten up and came in to see where we were - Actually, I think they wanted to see where Grandma was, and they went in and did their best to wake her up. In a matter of about 10 minutes of playing around, everybody was awake and heading back down stairs. Grandma was playing with the girls and shortly afterward Grandpa was putting dinner together. The rest of the evening was mostly the girls playing with Grandma and then she read them a couple of books - it was now bed time. Linda has had a busy day, so after the girls got to bed, the biggest girl also wanted to get to bed and finally sleep. I'm working the blog and soon I'll join her. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers, and Take care and stay positive.


  1. So glad that Linda can be there for so long!
    Praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 69:1-3, 13 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God...But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
