We feel a deeper sadness these days and I'm sure that our exhaustion has something to do with that.
Here's a picture taken just before Mom (Grandma) left for the airport. Both Grandmas find it hard to be away and to leave us knowing they might not see Rachel again. Rachel is growing on us all.
It was so good to have her here - one morning she watched Rachel so that I could walk Ethan and Abigail to the splash park. I had shared awhile ago that I was feeling blob-ish (is that a word?) with lack of exercise. That really helped! And I finished off the brownies;) so the temptation is reduced for now!
Also, here are a few pictures that Jaci Enns took for us at Westwinds Park a few weeks ago. I just got them today. Thanks so much Jaci! (and Jolynne for being a great assistant) We had good weather and the kids were semi co-operative. Rachel fussed for the last part which is why she has a huge green stopper in her mouth for some of the pictures.
