All the kids at home... Day 316 24SEP09
The first half of Joshua's day was rather normal. He did some school work and played in his room. After lunch he started his vigil for his older brother's arrival. He must have checked the front windows a hundred times to see if they had pulled into the driveway. Way before they showed up Taylor and Avery came over with Renee's parents. Uncle Scott stopped by for a bit and we got a chance to wish him a happy birthday. Finally Josh had somebody to play with! And play he did, non-stop. It wasn't very long until the rest of the kids showed up and our house was full of the sounds of adults, kids, and our new grand daughter. We had a great dinner that Renee had prepared and enjoyed celebrating Roxy's birthday. It isn't very often that we have all the kids under one roof and we miss it. Renee and I have moved up a rung on the parenting ladder, now we make a home note only for our children, but their children as well. It is a very nice feeling to be able to do that. We are all really tired from all the activity but it is a good tired and carries with it a smile.
