We've had a busy week around here! Josh's dad came to visit. Grandpa is a big kid at heart and one of those rare adults who doesn't just watch from the sidelines, he really plays along. So, of course the girls had a blast. We had to go through a little "grandparent detox" when he left, but it was because they were so exhausted from having so much fun.
Grandpa started off on the right foot by demonstrating his balloon animal making skills. I can't stand balloons, so they pretty much only get them on their birthdays, this was a huge treat.
There was also plenty of fun where I just didn't have the camera out. Trips for ice cream, bowling and arcade games, shopping, breakfast at IHOP without parents around to say no to anything, and plenty of other things I'm probably forgetting. And all of this in only 4 days!
The day after his dad left, Josh had to go out of town for work, so my mom came to stay with us for the night while he was gone. We tried to get back to our school routine, but plenty of things got put off. The great thing about homeschooling is we had time to do all of these great things and this week we're just picking up again where we left off (complete with rare blog posts...I'm trying to pick up the pace a bit!).
