I Guess She Forgot A Lot About Me

We were getting ready to go and get the girls hair cut today. "C,mon," I said to all of the children. "Let's get in the car so we can go and get our hair cut." Shocked beyond belief, my sweet middle daughter (4) incredulously replied, "What, mamma? You mean, you can drive?!?"

I guess having one car, walking everywhere, and taking loads of public transportation while we were living in London had convinced the dear child that mamma simply couldn't drive.

So, as that little story attests, we arrived safe and sound in America last week. Many thanks for all of your prayers. I should be around the blog more often now.

So funny, J! Don't you just love these priceless quotes that our kids give us. Reminds me of when H said that so and so grew up to be a doctor and so and so a teacher, then added "Mommy, how come you grew up to be nothing?" (Pause) "I know, you can be a cooker!"
Love it! So glad you're home!
Love, P

Hey there! Glad you're home and that you can still drive. That's good! Let me know when you have some time -- I'd love to pick your brain about the musical. :)

Welcome home!! I thought about you all weekend, for some strange reason and couldn't wait to have a few minutes to see what was up with you via your blog. Glad to hear you are safe and sound. Welcome back to the states!

Email me if you want to talk business and church stuff once you get settled--
