The wireless internet is finally up and running again at the Family House. This is great news for us, as we have been using the shared library with it's ultra slow computer, and having to set up the camera each time for skype so we can talk to the kids in the library. Also, we should be able to include a few pictures now that we can post from our own computer. And, if you have ever had as much free time as we have right now, you will understand how nice it will be to have the internet. So, that is the first bit of good news.
The kids are doing well. They just spent the last week in Corona with Kendall's family. They had a great time swimming, playing with the dog, having another birthday party for Damon, going to the beach, going to the train museum, playing with their cousins Luke and Sydney, and just being very loved by their grandma, grandpa, and aunt and uncle. They went back to Hurricane on Sunday, and Damon had his first day of preschool today with his cousin Ian. Grandma Ferrin also bought him a spiderman backpack, so I think he's feeling pretty good about himself right about now. We wish we could have been there to see him off, but Becky sent us some really cute pictures. Audrey is doing really well and is at a really good age for all of this. Damon has been having a little bit of a harder time, after seeing us and then having to deal with all the changes. I think everything he's going through is really normal, and 95% of the time he is just having a great time with our families. Their being away from us truly is by far the hardest part of all of this. I just wish I had my adorable, smooshable, kissable kids around all the time. I can't wait until we are back together as a family, the way things are supposed to be. They are coming up for a visit at the end of the month with Grandma Kari, and we can't wait!
We are also in limbo with a possible job opportunity, so things could be changing for us soon. Kendall's aunt will be staying with me while he flies back to Houston. We are so grateful that we have such loving families who have been there for us through all of this. We are trying to have faith that whatever is supposed to work out for us will. It has been a huge blessing to have Kendall here, and whatever happens in the future, I know that he was supposed to have this gap in employment so he could be there for me and our family.
Tomorrow is this week's big day of dr. appointments, so we'll update after that with how everything is going. I think these updates are really important for us to be able to look back on and remember what happened. Blogs are definitley the new journals. I feel Kaitlyn kicking me all the time, and it makes me really grateful that of all my babies, she is the one who feels the need to put on a show all of the time. It's quite reassuring.
Now that we have wifi we finally are able to post pictures, so here are some from our last visit with our kids in San Francisco:
