I know, it's been a while since we've updated. Scott made it home from his pharmacy conference/"man-cation" the night before Easter. Lily was especially happy to see her Daddy home. It was his first time away from her ~ we have been blessed Scott didn't have to leave before this.
Easter was beautiful. The weather was perfect. The Easter egg hunt after mass went better than Saturday morning's egg hunt, and our time together as a family was very nice. We celebrated Easter lunch with our friend Mike and later in the day we had Easter dinner with our neighbors, Nellie and Mike, and their girls. Nellie's friend and her adopted daughter from Guatemala were also there. We sure ate good!
I kept my promise to let the boys have Monday and Tuesday off for Spring Break. I originally suggested that we start back up with our school work. Now I am wishing we had. Scott called me from work on Friday afternoon and told me our household goods are going to be packed up this coming Wednesday!!! Oh my! We had dinner plans with friends Friday night but you can bet before dinner and all day today I have been going through the closets, file cabinets, and toys trying to separate out what we can live without for 3-4 months and what I want to hide from the packers that we will either ship out next month or put in our suitcases and carry back to the states with us.
I really thought we were going to finish school before the packout. The boys have promised me we won't be bringing schoolwork in their backpacks to do on our way to DC. That means a few school books will have to be shipped in our unaccompanied baggage that will leave on May 15th.
The O's touring the HSC-25 squadron. Lily was in the helicopter as much as the boys were.
