Thursday was surreal.
Lauren was nannying.
David worked at the bike shop.
Daniel is still in Spain at World Youth Day.
Joseph was at camp.
Marianna spent the day with her best friend and Lauren.
Rebecca was in MD, visiting her favorite cousin.
Okay, a few of the kids were home for dinner, but it was strange to be in such an empty house for so long. At least my chores were still family oriented--grocery shopping, school planning, organizing, etc.
Some quiet and uninterrupted time is refreshing, but I'm going to miss this crowd when they're gone!
