The Best Thing I've Heard All Week

     A brilliant friend of mine (Hi Amy) called her new boyfriend a 'gentleman savage' on Facebook this week, and it struck a chord ...

He's Back

Dan has arrived safely home and the truck has been unpacked! As for the huge piles of boxes, not so much. Each day or two, we tackle a new room. So far the living room has been set up and we are now working on David and Pat's room. The trampoline went up today, much to every one's delight and now the boys can burn off some energy without destroying the house. Derek has enjoyed having more than 4 books to look at over and over, and the boys spent one entire day in their room playing with LEGOs without a single fight!
On another subject, Dan is doing great on the foreman job...in fact, he is making so much progress so fast that they took away almost his whole crew because he was way ahead of schedule...LOL. He is really enjoying it, too. Plus, as of Monday, we have health insurance again! Hurray...anyone with kids can appreciate that one.
School is going more smoothly with the boys, as we are slowly getting into a better routine. I am becoming more comfortable teaching and relaxing a bit which always helps, especially with Patrick. I am enjoying it more, too, thanks to some new friends on the cafemom website that are encouraging me and offering great advice about new ways to try things.
We are starting to think about Christmas and how weird it will be to not have snow, or even cold weather. Call me crazy, but I love a cold winter night...a.great reason to snuggle down under the covers and watch a great movie with a fire going. Ah, well, I'll have to learn new ways to get into the holiday spirit this year. I am looking forward to finding my snowman collection and staring an indoor blizzard ;)
We are thinking of all you very often and wishing that we could see each other. I am praying for you by turns and hoping that you continue to do the same for us. All in all, the Lord is blessing us big time and we are enjoying that blessing. We love you and MISS you all like crazy. Lost boys, Mama K loves you!

So glad to hear that Dan made it back safely and you are getting settled in. I'm sure the boys were excited to have some toys to play with. It's been so long that all their 'old' stuff seemed like new! Missing you as we are getting closer to Christmas : (
