After Yellowstone and a meeting in Wyoming, Ben took the kids and I back to my parent’s house in Denver. We stayed there for a month while Ben went and had some meetings in California alone. We had two reasons for splitting up: first, we couldn’t find housing for all of us in CA, and it would be very costly to live in a hotel for a month; and second, because Ben needed some time alone to write his doctrinal papers for ordination. The time in one place gave us some stability, and the kids were even able to take swimming lessons!
Two days after Nolan’s Yellowstone stitches came out, he slipped at the water park and busted the wound open again. So off to the ER we went again, and this time we got staples! It was a rough life – he got popsicles, the TV remote, and toys!
Last day at Grandma & Grandpa’s. Thanks for putting up with us for a month. Enjoy the quiet! Sadie, we pray for you often (more than for Grandma & Grandpa ). We will miss you! Elaine wept (literally) when we had to leave, and we get requests often to return to Grandma’s house.
