Great Grandma Ewing and Aunt Ellen have arrived safe and sound! They made the trip from Alberta, Canada without any major hassles and we are delighted to have them here. Thank you, Lord. Hopefully we will be able to spend some time at the park tomorrow so that the abundance of noise that all 16 grandchildren make (all 6 and under, may I remind you) will be less noticeable.
The kids warmed up to them right away. Maranatha (2) demanded to sit on Great Grandma’s lap within minutes of being introduced. Dassy (3) cuddled right up and wanted to sing, Benjamin(6) and Josiah (5) filled them in on countless pieces of information that were of major importance (such as the goings on in AWANA tonight, the lemonade Benjamin made for a school project, and the fact that Josiah is done school, but Benjamin isn’t), and Payden(1) and Abigail(4) gave them their big grins and bounced all over.
They get it from their Dad.
