Clark is already a week old. How crazy is that?
He's a sweetheart. Does what most babies do, eat, sleep, poop. But Sunday he was starting to stay awake longer and that was fun. I got in all the holding I could.
We got them all packed up, cleaned the apartment, and moved them to Tennessee. They are staying with Vinnie's family for a week until their apartment is available. Vinnie's family are warm and welcoming and we like them so much. It does our hearts good to see how much they love Emma. They graciously fed us lunch on Sunday, and we spent several hours at their home.
We stayed in a sweet Airbnb Saturday night, and enjoyed sleeping in and listening to a nice thunderstorm move through. Then the power went out. Sigh... The power outage was due to a downed pole that didn't seem to have anything to do with the rain. We headed over to the inlaws house for lunch, hoping the power would be back on soon. By the time we left to go back to the Airbnb, the rain had started up again (so no swimming at the lake) and the power was still out. After talking with the Sarah and Kyle, we decided to just pack up and head home. We went back by to say good bye to Emma and family, and then hit the road.
As it was about 6:00pm when we left we went about an hour and a half and then decided to book a room online. The hotel had a great pool (which Kyle and Tim enjoyed) and really comfy beds. After driving all day Monday, we got home, unpacked, and got Tim ready for his work day for today.
We are thankful to be able to go down and help Emma and Vinnie get moved, and to spend a bit of time with them, and the grandbabies. Its always hard to leave them, but we do keep in touch through Marco Polo and through FaceTime. I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't live near all their grandchildren.
This week, I am keeping Kamryn and Klaire two days, and I have birthday shopping for Kamryn to do (she's nearly 8 already!), and Father's Day shopping, too. If we get a break in rain, mowing needs to happen. as well.
It's good to be home, though part of our hearts are still in Tennessee.
