For the first time in a long time, I’m sitting in a quiet house with no children around.Ethan, Audrey and Isaac are in Wisconsin with Nana and Grandpa Fritz and I’m at Brian and Missy’s house in Minnesota. I didn’t have to put anyone back in bed in the middle of the night and I didn’t have Isaac sneaking into my room at 6:00 to lay in bed with me (sort of miss that– a little). After sleeping in, I did a little shopping this morning. I’ve even taken time to put on makeup and fix my hair. It’s a miracle!
We’ve been away from home for a long time. The kids and I headed to MN on Saturday, June 9th. When we were planning this trip, we decided on a date that would give Dad and Joyce time with us before they needed to focus on planning for the Henning reunion and also give the kids quality time with the Fritz grandparents as well. If we do the reunion next year, we wont be gone as long since Dad and Joyce would not be planning the reunion. Nathan has remained in TN to so he can save vacation time for our trip back here in November.
Here are some highlights:
Running into someone from Chetek in Rockford, IL.
Playing in the kiddie pool at Grandpa Henning’s
Seeing the Friesen’s and seeing the kids have fun jumping in the puddles.
The Henning gathering with over 21 (I think) of us there! So thankful for all the extra hands in helping with the kids while we were there.
Visiting our friends in Winsted. More puddle jumping.
Seeing my Grandma Rosenfelt on Tuesday.
Randomly running into my aunt Kathy at Target in Cottage Grove.
Audrey losing her FIRST tooth!
and, currently, the kids are most likely having the time of their life feeding goats and chickens and charming the women at the senior center! The goats and chickens are at Nana and Grandpa’s house- not the senior center(in case that wasn’t clear).
Tomorrow night Nathan flies in to MSP. I get to see my husband for the first time in almost two weeks! Woohoo! I can’t wait!
