Quite the nice day at the Ross homestead. We got up before 07:00 and when I came down stairs a few minutes after getting up, I find the girls in with their daddy, watching cartoons. I think this is one of the best times for the three of them, usually with Stacy snuggled up against Jason and Jackie close up next to Stacy. They look so comfortable I decided to leave them alone and go back and finish taking care of the kitchen - since I hadn't completed it last night.
I finally tell them that I need to get breakfast going, and that Jackie has an appointment this morning. Reluctantly they get up and Jason tells the girls that they need to go get some breakfast. I get Jason's breakfast to him and the girls are soon eating, afterward. Jackie's appointment is over at Dewey School, which is about 1/3 mile away, so it isn't too far, and we all decide to walk over - that is, Stacy, Jackie and I. Jackie has a 1-hour appointment so Stacy and I walk back home and then walk back over when it is time to pick her up. I tell the girls that tomorrow we get to go to the library, and they are both pretty excited abou it, and it made the walk back home even more fun.
For whatever reason, both the girls love going to the library, and I guess I have to give most of the credit to Linda. She got into the habit of taking them to the library all last summer, and even a few times through the school year. Both Stacy and Jackie love going through books, and now Stacy is beginning to even read those books. She likes to stop at signs along the walk and attempt to read what is written, and she does a pretty good job.
Shortly after lunch the girls go down for their "brain-rest" (they like that better than taking a nap), and then Stacy has to get to her appointment with Dr. K. Both girls like to go, as it is another "adventure" and there are things for Jackie to do there, so she isn't just sitting and waiting. Once that appointment is over we head back to the house and I am amazed, and surprised that the traffic is much better than I had anticipated.
The rest of the day, and evening was pretty easy with the girls spending more time with their daddy, and then it got to be bed time. They picked a couple of stories to be read to them and then the day was done. Jason is continuing to improve and feel better, after the surgery, and though it is slow, it is still positive. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
