We had some visitors today - Linda's Mom and Dad came down and they brought along Lisa and Michael... Linda's sister and brother-in-law. We hadn't seen them in quite some time, and it was good to be able to get together, for at least a little while. This was their first visit to see Jason, also, so it was a positive all the way around. They arrived mid-morning an we all went to breakfast. That gave us a chance to sit down and do some initial catching up; then we came back to the house for a short break and then Linda and Lisa went over to the school to pick up the girls (they got out at noon today).
Fortunately they didn't have to leave right away, and that gave us a little more time to visit and catch up some more. They are down, from Utah, to visit with Joe and Jess, Linda's (and Lisa's) parents, and will be visiting for a few days. It was good to see them, and I think it was a wonderful gift for Linda, as she really does miss her family, We got a few pictures and I will see if I can get a couple posted by tomorrow.
Jason also had a parent-teacher conference today, so he had to leave before they did (that's the reason the girls were out early today). It actually felt pretty good to see him take off to handle this, on his own, and he did so very confidently.
The rest of the day was just spent taking care of a few things around the house and Linda going off to do a little shopping. She was back at the house before it got dark, and we didn't have to go anywhere else for the rest of the day. Tomorrow is our 39th anniversary, and we kind of already celebrated it up in Julian. That's okay, because we'll still have a good day, and a good time tomorrow. She committed to be getting up in the morning and fixing French Toast and a nice breakfast... I'm looking forward to it, for sure! Thank you for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
