Wonderful Week at HOME

There's no place like home!  There's no place like home!  After a 7-day 'staycation' at the hospital waiting on counts to recover, Paige and I have enjoyed some much-needed time at home with Jeremy and Boyce.  Yes, it meant a delay in treatment.  Yes, we are more than ready to be done with this part.  But I've got to say--it was amazing having our family all under one roof again.

Eating dinner together at home.  All four of us.  

Taking in a couple of movies at the actual theater.  Off-peak times, of course--can't take any chances right now.  All four of us one time, just the girls for the other.

Kitchen time with the kiddos.  Baking and frosting cupcakes.  Paige loves to bake, and this was the first time in quite a while she's been up to it.  She and Jeremy did the majority of the work while Mom supervised.  Yum, yum, yum!  A few nights later, Dad helped Paige and Mom prepare dinner--it was Paige's special request of King Ranch Chicken.  Delicious!

Game time.  We are suckers for board games.  Always have been.  From Life to Connect Four to Scrabble--we love 'em all.  Having time to just hang out and play games was something we all needed.

These things all seem very simple, very ordinary.  And I suppose on some levels they are.  But as our family has come to find out over the last 8 months, any time we can spend together is extraordinary.  Priceless.  Cherished.  And the best part--there will be much more time together.  The best is yet to come!

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.   1 Thessalonians 5:18
