We are back home. Arrived sometime before midnight. The trip was nice, but too short. We got to visit with three other families at a barbecue before beginning the long drive-- the kids had a blast! They swam and played so much, the van was actually full of peace and quiet because they were sleeping! Imagine that!
First thing this morning as I attacked the pile of laundry I found a Pull-up that had made it into the washing machine. What a gelatinous mess! Good thing Adam was in the laundry room or I would have probably said some not very nice things-- instead I just thought them. Ugh! Why couldn't I have just checked the inside of Dennis' pajama bottoms? Or better yet, why couldn't he have separated the diaper from the shorts?
Dennis had a occupational therapist evaluate him at noon today since his previous report was lost. It sounds like he will qualify because of his fine motor skills-- or lack of them. I have seen the progress with my other kids who got OT so I am excited for Dennis!
Thank you to all of you who have been a part of making our mission trip to Ukraine possible! Don't think for a minute that all of you aren't going with me in spirit! Thank you to you know who for covering shipping costs of the raffle items-- thank you to those who have sent care packages for the kids-- thank you to those who have donated items for another raffle coming up. A very encouraging friend who I had dinner with last week donated six brand new canvas bags so I can get started on the owl designs.
In just two weeks we are leaving. I am putting together a care package for the adults-- mosquito repellent, spices, a first aid kit, washcloths, and whatever else comes to mind. If you have any suggestions that would be great!
Please check back this evening-- a new raffle will be starting.
P.S. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Sara Wendt who bought the cupcakes. You made Rachel's day more than you know. :)
