Well, my parents just headed out for more southward climes an hour or so ago. We miss them already. Jonathan went over to the spare room where my mom was staying right after they drove out. He stopped in the doorway and stared in with a mopey look. He put his head down and walked toward the kitchen. I gave him a quick hug as he walked by and let him know that I missed them too. It's usually hard when they leave after a visit, but they were here for two weeks and we all got used to having them around a little more this time. Unfortunately for mom, the weather wasn't too warm. Everything is finally in bloom, but it is more like spring here than summer. Even as I write this it is 56 degrees outside. Yesterday, Jeremiah's game was canceled mostly because of the cold and wind. Then they canceled Jonathan's league for the night and the rain started about the time they would have been on the field. We actually got a pretty good rain last night.
I am going to be starting my first classes toward my master's degree in another week or so, and I am looking forward to it. The rest of the summer will be somewhat quiet until we get to August. Right now, we just have the boys baseball games to worry about. Amelia is recovering well. She is feeling better every day. We are so grateful for all of the help that my parents and her mom were here to give us. They kept an eye on the kids and helped me focus on taking care of Amelia. Last night we fixed chicken fettuccine alfredo for supper as a thank you to the both of them. We had a really good visit with them. The extra room in this house really makes it easy to let everyone have their own space when they need it.
As for the title of this post. I have a feeling it may be hard to talk my parents into coming up here in any months but July or August in the future. : ) I know it isn't officially summer yet, but we are just getting a good dose of spring the last few weeks. I personally wouldn't trade it for anything. We love it here and look forward to seeing what God has in store for us.
