If you've never been to my blog before....WELCOME!
Since there are 12 months in the year and 12 days to go to Christmas Eve, it seems fitting to start today!
Our darling granddaughter was born at the end of December. What joy she has brought to our lives! I spend 2 weeks with the kids in Springfield awaiting her birth and one week following it. What fun we had and what a blessing it was to share in E's arrival into the world! I missed hubby something awful, we'd never been apart for that amount of time, but it was so worth it!
I came home just before New Year's. It was so hard to say good-bye and I sobbed for about an hour on the trip home! However, on the trip home I received a phone call asking me to help with our caucuses that were coming up in just a few days, that helped to take my mind off of leaving. I ended up running our precinct's caucus and we have the one of the biggest in our county. It was quite an experience and one I'm not sure I want to repeat!
In early January, they made a trip home to search for a job for L and a place to live, they had made the decision to return home for awhile!
At the end of January, we trooped down to Springfield, MO and moved them back to Iowa. They moved in with us! How wonderful to get to spend so much time with our new grandbaby!
Almost time to head out. What a fun, funky house they had down there!
Saying "Good-bye" to E's first home.
We made it back to Iowa!
