And now we are 3..

Tristin, Camille and Elijah left on July 2nd with Grandma and Papa for Florida.  They spent the first week in Disney and got to visit with Uncle Jimmy who lives in Orlando.  They would call and check in every night with what they have done and how much fun they are having.  It was great timing actually for them to go when they did since Caleb has his accident.  Caring for Caleb in his SPICA cast he's wearing to due to falling and breaking his femur bone on June 24th has been taking alot of my time.  He just wants me to sit by him all day long and watch cartoon and tickle him.  Its the least I can do for the little bugger.  I think he's taking this whole thing alot better than I would, being in the same position all day and all night everyday.

The phone calls have tapered off and have become much shorter and less descriptive of what the kids are doing in Florida.  They are "just to busy" to talk on the phone.. so I am missing them a ton.

Now today, Tom just left to goto Hershey for an annual conference he attends at the Hershey Lodge.  We generally go with him and enjoy the hotel pool all day with the kiddos.  With Caleb in his cast, we cannot go.  So Tom is heading solo to Hershey as I type this and I am all alone with the twins for the next two days.  Tom will be back Tuesday evening.  WOW!!!!  We went from 7 to 3 in less than two weeks time.. its quiet.. laundry is caught up... dishes are done... I am cooking way to much at each meal, gotta figure out smaller portion sizes to prepare...  I think I'm getting a taste of empty nest syndrome.  I dunno, it does have its ups and it does have it downs, but I like chaos and noise and never knowing whats going to happen the next minute.

So what shall I do??  I was thinking about picking some blueberries here on the farm and canning some blueberry jam  OR I could surprise Tristin, Camille and Elijah and wallpaper their bathroom for them.  That is something I've been wanting to get to for a year now, even purchased all the supplies and never did it... OR I could hit the walkway tomorrow for a jog and take my time and enjoy the scenery.

What to do?? What to do??  Twins are in preschool tomorrow from 9 to 12:30... hummm????
