It seems like I was looking forward to my mum and Bob coming to visit for so long, and then, in the blink of an eye, the 10 days were over. And now, after another blink, I realized that it’s been almost two weeks since they left.[flickr_set id=”72157636181673383″]
Abe and Bob spent some time practicing with their slingshots, and they even made one for Leo. He was pretty good, hitting a wheelbarrow consistently from fifteen feet. The big boys could hit a hanging can from about 60 feet. Next year they plan to get us a turkey for roasting.
Jan and I obviously played quite a bit of cards and such. Most of the time, it was with the kids, so games like Go Fish! Still, it was fun and the boys really enjoy playing games (of which we have a ton). What was truly amazing (other than Leo always whispering to Jan whenever he picked up a dolphin – her Go Fish favorite) was that Nicky did really well. He can play some of our board and memory games unaided, but this was a little harder. And he actually held his own. He would occasionally ask you for a card he didn’t have, but that was the extent of his mistakes – not bad for a two year old.
Of course, as always, it all passed way too fast, and now we’re back to work. It really sucks that we all live so far apart.
