A special email...

Last week Robby and I left to go on a little trip, just the two of us, for 5 days and it was amazing.  We visited Montana and had such a wonderful time.

I'll share more about our trip in the next few days when I finally weed through all of the pictures I took!  I've spent the past few days at home just trying to get caught up on life.

Gigi and Papa were kind enough to keep the kids for us and they were in for a doozy of a weekend.  Right before we left, Hudson came down with another ear infection and right after leaving he came down with a stomach virus that lasted for several days.  Between that, dealing with a puppy, the girls school work and everything else, they certainly had their work cut out for them.  I felt helpless being so far away and not being able to help, but I felt confident the kids were in great hands.  We were so thankful for our time away, but I was really happy to be home.

Mimi came in town for a visit right before I got home and was able to relieve Gigi on the last evening.  It was a total surprise to the kids that she showed up and I've been so happy to have here here since Robby stayed out west to met some friends to go skiing for a few days.

While Hudson's stomach virus went away completely earlier this week, he came down with a cold and has been completely miserable since I've been home.  He's been whiney, irritable, unhappy and everything else in between.  Such a treat to come home to...ha!

Hearing from Harper's teacher was the real treat today.  She sent me a picture in an email this morning saying that a friend of Harper's was having a hard time with his morning work and Harper noticed he was stuck.  On her own she pulled up a chair to his desk to help him finish.  Her teacher said this was just one example she sees daily of how caring and sweet Harper is.  As her mom it sure did make me proud of her to know that she had no idea she was being watched, yet she still chose to display kindness because it was the right thing to do.  Love that sweet girl of mine!

Can't wait to hear more about your trip, and I loved that Harper story. Such a sweet teacher to take time to share that with you, too!
