They Are Home
I neglected to mention the other day that Hannah and Ben are home. My house is relatively full again, not only with the returning chicklets, but their friends as well. Hannah is as brown as a nut and I can see a change in her. She is changing from a child to a young lady.
Ben is taller and still has that smart-alecky sense of humor, but his attitude is definitely better than it was when he left. My boy is growing up too.
Many thanks to my long-suffering parents for taking on my kids for the summer. I hope you don't have too many new grey hairs from it. The kids had a blast and enjoyed getting to know some of the extended family.
