I cannot drive. He finally came home Thursday evening and we were all so glad to see him. There was nothing more beautiful than seeing him again!
Despite all of that had happened, while Steven was in the hospital, we have tried to have a fun week, to distract them from all that has been going on with their daddy. We celebrated our nation's birthday with...
|Red, White and Blue Pancakes|
which didn't make to the table without a bite out of them!
|Patriotic (Mummy) Dogs|
|Red, White and Blue drinks|
I had planned lots of games, but somehow we couldn't do them after the accident.
Quentin and Katie did set up a ring toss game with 2 liter bottles and they played that awhile.
Then I got out bubble wands...
and the colors were just magical.
They cooled themselves off with the 2 liters of water.
Flag Rice Krispies
Then Sparklers once it got dark.
and a patriotic cake!
|Since then, we have passed the time waiting for Daddy to come home by playing games, creating things...|
|...pretending, completing the never-ending chores of family life and being as supportive as we can to each other.|
|We received a postcard from Japan! I will post more about this when we make a page for our Postcard-Geography album about it.|
The beautiful side of difficult times is to witness how willing good people like you are to outpour your kindness and love. Even through our worry and difficulties, we are truly blessed.
