My friend Kelly decided to surprise me by helping my kids do a special Mother's Day project for me. Mitch was busy Friday night/Saturday morning with the last YFU orientation for this school year. Kelly came over on Saturday morning and watched all the kids (sans Caleb, who was at Mall of America with a friend) while I headed out to do the grocery shopping. She even kept Obadiah! I was so nervous that she would be overwhelmed by all those kids. :) At some point I realized, hey--I do this every day, she'll be able to handle it!
It was such a sweet gift from Kelly and the kids! Kelly is celebrating her first Mother's Day with her baby girl in her arms. :)
On Sunday night Kathi displayed some amazing observation skills and presented me with a gift that made me very excited. :)
One of my favorite movies, Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightly. ;) I can't wait to have a girls' night! Especially with all the stressful things going on here lately (more on that in the next post).
