We had a wonderful impromptu visit from our kids in Texas . They called us Saturday morning and said that they were in the car going to visit the other grandparents and were going to swing by and visit us on the way, but could only stay 2 days. That was the best news I could ever hear! We have been missing them so much! We packed as much fun as we could into the short time they were here. Our grandchildren are growing too fast and they are so cute.
So our house was filled with laughter and giggles and hugs, making tents, catching bugs, and spilled milk. There were toys strewn from one end of the house to the other, shoes by the front door, artwork taped to the walls, and sleeping bags all over the place.
Now they have gone. The house is clean. The laundry is done. It's so quiet.
