Just to be on the safe side, we headed to Texas during tropical storm Lee. My thinking was that even if it wasn't going to be a big deal, it would be better to be stuck somewhere with power and little chance of flooding than to be stuck here with that possibility and the 3 little ones. So, we made an impromptu visit to Texas. We did have a nice time visiting, and I think the grandparents really enjoyed seeing the kids.
Kyle cooked for us on Labor Day. We were supposed to come back the night before, but I had a paper due in my online UL class, and the drive would have made it impossible to finish in time. So, we stayed another night. I got my paper and assignments in just before their due time on Sunday night. (Whew!) It was very close, because I underestimated my assignment. When I read "essay," I thought that would mean about 1 page, but it meant a 2-3 page research paper. My bad! Anyway, I pulled it off.
Oh yeah, one more interesting thing that happened this weekend was that while visiting my grandparents' church, JM got to go sit with us during "big church," because he has just turned 4 years old. He loved it! He actually conducted himself very well. And, while I worked on my paper Sunday night, he and S put on their oun church service in the living room. JM was the pastor, and S was the worship leader. They were so cute! I only got to see a little bit due to my paper, but they were keeping everyone else entertained. Who knows? Maybe they will get a call to ministry someday.
We got back here last night, and everyone is out of our routine. So, I am gonna try not to stress out too much today. I have decided to do bathrooms tomorrow since the kids probably won't nap well today. Ah, back to life.
