  • Mom and Dad left this morning. Beka was very upset and wanted to go with them.
  • Josh worked at the school for the morning and then came home and concreted some mowing strips around the gardens. The children and I had a quiet day at home. I even got a nap in!!
  • I have to get used to not referring to all my children as "the girls". =)
  • We took a walk as a family this evening. Well, Josh and I walked, the girls rode bikes/scooters, and Nathan got carried.
  • Catie learned to ride her bike without training wheels this afternoon!!
  • I got a load of laundry done.
  • Made cheese pizza for dinner.
  • All children got bathed/showered.
  • They are all in bed and asleep already.
  • I have less than 10 things in the sink to be washed.
  • The house is tidy.
  • I consider that to be a fairly successful first day without Mom and Dad.
p.s. I was trying to get a good picture of Nathan. I got lots of interesting looking ones but none I'd call good. The one I posted makes me laugh because it looks like my 10 day old baby is throwing some gang signs or something.

LOL Tamra, you really make me smile. :) Your "girls plus boy" are all beautiful. I like the photo of Nathan! What a groover. Well done to Catie, Saraya is still on trainers after our one attempt at getting her off them. Well, they are off- she just can't ride. :)
Well done Tamra, it's always an adjustment after Mum and Dads go home, I know from experience too. :) Sounds like you're doing great.
Love, Saminda xo
