This past week has been a busy one. We've made some new friends, a family that is here with Caterpillar, so we spent quite a bit of time with them. Today being Easter, we had them over for a late lunch which turned into an early dinner. I think our oven is running low and I should really put the oven thermometer in there to actually check. Yesterday the kids were busy, the boys had a birthday party, the girls bought birthday gifs and then everyone went to the Consulate Easter egg hunt. Today we had our own egg hunt in the back yard and egg dyeing. Even better, all the kids were able to talk with their grandpa, grandma and great-grandma too on Skype. It was good for everyone to see him and know that he's going to be OK. They were even off to Easter Mass today and I hope he managed fine and won't suffer for it later. My dad made it home on Tuesday and will have a long recovery at home. My grandmother has flown down from Wisconsin to help out as well, so I know that meals will be eaten and sleep will be had. It's a good thing, and an Easter blessing.
And tomorrow the kids go back to school. Another blessing not to be ignored.
