Keith came "home" to Kennesaw for the weekend. We all felt TOGETHER again. Bikes were fixed, computer programs installed, kids tossed around and I slept soundly. There's something about having the husband home that takes away the pressure of making sure everything is okay.
On Saturday, we went to Newnan to check on the progress of our house. It was the first time I got to go inside! The bigger kids got to go in, too. Then, we all went to another house that is nearly finished except for cabinets and flooring. It was fun for the kids to take a closer look at their rooms. Keri Lynn especially is enjoying designing her room.
Sunday was Father's Day, and Keith got to bring his brood to church. One of the things about having a large family is that Father's Day and Mother's Day are especially FUN! We also can't usually afford a nice restaurant, so McDonald's it was! Keva decided to have a VERY stinky diaper while we were there, so changing that 30-wipe mess was my Father's Day present to Keith.
Monday, we went to Stone Mountain for the first time. For those of you reading this that aren't from around these here parts, Stone Mountain is a Southern version of California's Knott's Berry Farm. At the center of the acres and acres of park, is a stone mountain with an etching of three Confederate war heroes. You can take an aerial tram up to the top of the mountain where you have a breathtaking view of Georgia! We were a little worried that we'd lose some kids down the mountain, but we made it back down in one piece. We also went on a train, enjoyed a 4-D show, watched a smithy at work, and saw a laser light show outside right on the side of Stone Mountain. This will be a place we'll return to again and again -- Maybe YOU will come and visit with us when you come see us!
On Tuesday, Keith left us to attend to his business trip, the whole reason why he was in Atlanta in the first place! He got to speak with the president of the company -- a very big honor -- and then left to go back to L.A. and slave labor as he continues to get our house ready to sale!
Come home soon, Sweetie Pie!
Before Middle and End!
