Gone



    Everyones face looked like this this morning.  Both kids pretended like they couldn't wake up and Mackenzie started to cry.  I want to stay!  It was so hard.  I wanted them to stay also.  So we talked about the next visit and promised to save all our pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters so we could see each other again.

    We did a sweep of the house and were sure they had gotten everything, but found a shirt and shorts from Gabe behind the door.  They will be too small by the next time they come.  The house seems quiet and we are already missing them.  I tried not to let them see me crying as they pulled away.

   We had fun while they were here. Went hiking and I finally hit the infamous Chucky Cheese.  It actually was pretty fun.





        Now work tonight.  I got up at 5:30 this morning so spent the rest of the day trying to nap.  I just am not a napper.  I husband can sit in one place for a minute and fall asleep.  Wish I was that lucky.  So tonight will be a little difficult but I will sleep like a dream tomorrow.

       More rain and hail today.  Hope it just stops. Enough already.  I will have to catch up on everyone's journals.  But now.  Now I am getting supper ready.  BBQ chicken.  Yummy.

It is sad when family leaves, but just think about all the good times you had, and will have the next time.

I'm sure you'll all be missing each other now Julie but there's always next time. Living so far makes the visits extra special doesn't it? I've a lot of catching up to do too! Jeannette xx

Aw, Julie, I saw that little tear on the first picture.  Wow, breaks hearts.  I think saving the change will be good for them.  They will have something to actively do to get ready for their next trip.  I meant to comment on your last entry that they really did get to see life as it is in Iowa.  I'm praying for all who are flooded.  Hope you get through work ok....Chris

{{{julie}}}  i know how hard it had to be to say goodbye....and that sweet, precious sad face.  :(  hopefully they can come back soon.  do they have internet where you might could exchange emails?? some of the instant messenger services have voice service where it's almost like talking on the phone.  and i think it's a man thing where they can just go to sleep anywhere anytime!  lol

I'm sure your grandchildren will remember their stay with their grandparents fondly, for many days to come.  They will only want to come back again even more.  :)  I know you miss them though - hugs - Julie
