September 8, 2013

Today was a day basically spent at home and it was nice just relaxing and having the girls to play with. They spent some time with Jason, in his room and with me around the rest of the house. We had our pancake breakfast, and Stacy helped with the making of the pancakes. After lunch the girls took their naps, and Jason took his shower; then, after they got up we all went shopping at Target, to buy a few things for Stacy and a couple things for Jackie. The good news is that most of the clothes that Stacy grows out of, Jackie can put on, and Jason doesn't have to buy new clothes for her. He still does, to make sure she doesn't feel left out, but it is so nice to have all these ready to use clothes. The realization is that in a few years I don't know if that is still going to be done. Jackie is built differently than Stacy, and I suspect that she will soon be wearing larger sizes as she gets older and Stacy's clothes are always going to fit.

When the girls went to bed tonight I read two stories to them, since they each have a bed. What I had been doing is sitting on the edge of Stacy's bed and reading a story to them at night, and now that they both have beds, I have to sit on both of their beds, and thus I read two stories. It really doesn't take too much time to do the stories, so I don't mind, and the girls get extra time with Grandpa.

Next week is going to be a little different, in that we still take the girls to Balboa and drop them off at the Child Development Center (CDC); and, then we head over to Mirimar for a special training class for Jason. It will be going on for at least a week, and after the training we come back to the CDC to pick the girls back up. The thing is, this is supposed to be a one-week class, or training, and Jason can not stay up for the entire eight-hour class sessions. I don't know if that means he will have to go for two weeks or what, so my guess is we'll find something out tomorrow. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers - Take care and stay positive.

  1. Hope you can figure out how Jason can take the class!
    Stopping by to let you know I'm still here praying!
