I am glad to be home and sad to be away from my girls. I had a parent teacher conferance with Allie's teacher just after landing this morning. I was so happy to hear of Allie's progress and how she is such a special part of her class. I was thankful to hear about her good grade and diligent work ethic. We are so proud of her and how she is adapting to all of the chaos in her life. We are so thankful to CHS for the stability they are giving our children during these trials in their young lives. I have already managed to find lots of work and unfinished business to keep me busy back home. I talked with Blake on the phone a bit ago and look forward to just hanging out with him tonight. He says he missed me and wants to spend time with me. This made me feel so good because as he gets older it is more difficult to talk with him on the phone. Us guys are really not cut out for telephone conversation. I can't wait to get home and start hanging out with him. Allie was great traveling today. I was hesitant to take her on this trip as I thought I would have less time with Trish and Ash because I would have to entertain Allie the whole time, but Trish and I were so very blessed by Allie and what a great job she did. She was not selfish at all she was just great the whole time we were gone. On the trip up there I got to see the most beautiful sunset from above the clouds and on the trip home I got to see an equally beautiful sunrise from above. It is such a blessing and a reminder of how God continues to provide for us each and every day. Thank you all for your prayers for our Gherkin. Please lift Trish up in prayer as she is the one doing all the hard work. Ummmm... Maybe pray for me a bit to as I am still trying to figure out how to be "Mr. Mom" ....that just sounds so wrong..
May God bless each one of you today,
