A very nice day for us today, as we all got up a little on the early side and decided to head up to take a look at the new house. First though, we needed to get some breakfast, and Joe and Jess (Linda's folks) wanted to take us all to breakfast at the local waffle house. It provided a chance to just sit and relax, and have some good conversation before the drive up - we were taking two vehicles - and after the stop at Jason's new house, they were heading on home, back to Lake Forest.
The drive up to the property was much easier than anticipated, though we already knew the traffic would be reduced some, because of the people on vacation. We targeted 10:00 as our arrival time and we managed to get there by 10:05, so we didn't take too long at the restaurant after all.
The progress on the house looks great and they are now working on the roof as well as the electrical. I am still very hopeful that the house will be ready before the end of August, and we can get all moved in before the start of the new school year. Jason has already begun the process of looking for a school in the Fallbrook area, and the school where the girls are currently going already know they will not be coming back next year. Therefore, timing is very important on the progress of the house.
We left the property just a few minutes after Joe and Jess said their good-bye's, and we made it back down to Point Loma at a little after noon. Funny thing is, about two minutes after walking in to the house here, Jess called to let us know they had just gotten home also, so even though we went in opposite directions we ended at about the same time.
Linda fixed some lunch and the girls laid down for a nap and we took care of a few things around the house. Joselyn came in and was working with Jason when Linda and I decided to go lay down for a little while - a much needed nap. I got up first and went down stairs, and Linda came down a little later. I made sure the girls were up, as I want them to enjoy the rest of the day, and besides they were already stirring when I checked on them.
I fixed a bunch of left overs and we had some great family time through the evening. It got to be bed-time and the girls decided they wanted to do something a little different. It was totally their decision and Stacy came over and jumped up on my lap and said she was going to read a book to me. I was very happy, and proud for this to happen, and I think Stacy was very proud that she is getting so much better at reading now. Jackie then decided that she wanted to also read a story to me, and when Stacy was done, Jackie jumped up. Jackie wasn't able to read the story as well as Stacy, but she did know it and I helped her along the way. We still had a great time and then the girls were ready for bed.
Tomorrow we'll be heading over to the zoo, and spend a few hours there, in the morning. Jason said he has an appointment, so he won't be joining us, and that's okay, he'll be able to take them again in a few days, if they want to go. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
