3) I'm thankful for a friend who understands. Yesterday I spent some time with Elisabeth, my friend who lost her baby Estella, and we had a really good time. All we did was watch a movie and walk around at Garden Ridge, but we were able to talk about our feelings about the upcoming holidays and just share our hearts. I wish there was no one else who could understand, but I'm thankful that there is!
These first three pictures aren't of my trip, but I just had to include them. The day before I left, I went to the park to work on my scrapbook. I thought I would take some food and just enjoy the afternoon. So I get there and find a picnic table that looks out at the lake, and begin to unwrap my sandwich. By the time I'm ready to take my first bite, I hear this coming towards me. I look over and there were about 50 geese/ducks headed my way, honking. I quickly realized that I was going to have to head back to my car and eat there, but I just had to snap a few pictures of these psycho birds!
There really were a lot more geese than what I got in this picture, but with a sandwich in one hand, it was kind of hard to get a picture of all of them!!
After our time together, my parents and I drove up to Concord, California (near San Francisco) to my cousin's house. My aunt, uncle, and Grandma were already there waiting for us. Lynnea, my cousin, made a delicious dinner, and we had so much fun looking at pictures of my brother's wedding from a few weeks ago.
It was a tiring trip for Miss Molly!
Grace showed me all of her schoolwork that she had done. She is such a smart little girl, and Lynnea is homeschooling her. They have an amazing classroom set up, and the curriculum is really great. I truly am impressed by it--homeschooling is definitely not what it used to be!!
