Busy Saturday

What a great day. Busy but great. Our neighborhood had a block party for a neighbor that returned from Irag a few weeks ago. It was really nice. The kids were running through sprinklers, and a slip n slide. Grills were being used, pasta salad, watermelon, and desserts all present and wonderful. :) One of the neighbors had a sign made that said Welcome home Dan our hero and had the Navy Sign right in the middle of it, we honoured his wife, Dawn with a plant to remember our neighborhood and let her know we are proud of how she had to hold down the fort while he was gone. Sometimes we forget just how difficult that is and how they have to readjust to life with each other present everyday. The local paper came out and took pictures. It was a really sweet time. As nice as it was to welcome him home we now have to send off my nephew Adam and I am not looking forward to seeing him go. Of course I know his parents can't be too crazy about him leaving either. My family, on both sides, is very supportive of our troops but it will be hard to see him leave. So, prayfully we will have a welcome home party for him in the very near future.
Dh and number one son are out of town for his Olympic Development training in soccer this weekend. I sure hate it when they are gone. I know he is having a great time and learning a lot just hate that they are gone for Father's day. They will be in late tomorrow evening. I did manage to get the kids to bed very early after all of the activity today and now I believe I am going to settle down for the evening and watch my favorite movie, Sweet Home Alabama, which is something I do when dh is out of town. I couldn't begin to tell you how many times I have seen it.hehe I really should just go to bed myself or at least lay out all the clothes for church tomorrow but I doubt I will do either. I will mad at myself in the morning when I am rushing trying to get the church on time but then it would not be Sunday morning here in our home if there was not a little excitement before church. :)
