Dad leaving

My dad was leaving Sunday March 8th. Me and Rillz were taking my dad, Brent and Noelle to the airport. Brent and Noelle were flying out a 1/2 hour before my dad was. We got together as a family that morning to say our goodbyes. The men gave my mom a blessing and then we had a family prayer. So Rillz and I took all three of them to the airport. We drop them off and head back to Caldwell to be with my mom so everyone else can go to church. Half way back we get a call saying to go back to the airport to pick up my dad. What?!? My dads plane got stuck in Chicago in a storm and would make it to Boise hours later. My dad wouldn't have been able to catch his connecting flight. We picked him up and took him home for one more day. My mom was thrilled that they got another day together and my dad was already packed and ready so they just enjoyed each others company all night.

Me and my dad. I am definitely a daddys girl!

Heidi and Gunnar doing flashcards with mom. This helps my recognize and say common words. But Gunnar always says the word aloud before my mom.
Rillz and Jeff talking about who knows what. I must say Jeff comes up with random things to talk about all the time! It is fantastic.

More flashcards
Everyone hanging around doing our own things.
I am very blessed for my family and everyones willingness to step in when needed. I am grateful for my dad and everything he does for the family. I am glad to see he has faith in us girls to get things taken care of with mom while he is gone. My dad has always been a hard worker and it will be good for him to get back into the work routine. We love you dad and we will see you before we know it.
p.s. is it just me or does 2009 seem to be skipping months because it feels like it should be the middle of January not March!! Holy cow! Anyways random, I know.

It does feel like the year just started but really we are already into march. That is why I am hoping it continues to fly by. So far so good. These last couple of days have gone by pretty quickly. I might have to get some of these pictures from you. I need to download mine and see what I have. Love you!

Not random- I feel the same way every day! I can't BELIEVE it's the middle of March! Insane!

I like all the pics- you girls are so good and hard working, it's no wonder why your dad trusts you guys to take care of your mom:)
