Emiy is rolling out her part of the dough to make her cherry popovers. She loves baking and it was a lot of fun to show the girls how to make them.. We got Emily's wrapped up and ready for her to take to her family.. I told her to hide them or her brother John would hog them all..
We met Rich in Stockton, Illinois at 4 p.m. Emily was happy to see her Dad.. We had a sandwich at the subway and got to visit with Rich for a little bit.. The girls showed their dad the framed picture that Aunt Tracie helped them make and some photos.. They were very excited to tell him all the things that we did. We got everything into Richards car that the girls had brought to my house.. Ben went with us today to take the girls to illinois.. After we left he was not happy. He didn't realize that the girls were not riding back home with us. He wanted us to turn back around.. HE kept saying "I'll never get to see them ever~!".. turn around... " I'll not ever see them ever.." Poor thing he was just beside himself.. He really enjoyed the girls and had such a great time with them.. On the way home the sun was behind the clouds and I gave the camera to Ben. trying to get him to think about something else beside the girls..
He took these pictures of the clouds with the sun.. I thought he did a really great job.. He loved taking these pictures. He took a dozen or more pictures. It worked it tood his mind off the girls. He noticed we would be on top of a hill and then we would go down into valleys.. So he learned about hills and valleys.. It even rained and it surprised him. because he could still see the sun shining in the distance..
It's WEdnesday today, and I woke up late.. It felt good to sleep in and just relax.. The house was quiet and I really missed the girls not being here.. So I called Rich,, he said Emily was still sleeping.. that was at 10 this morning. She must of been worn out..
Picked up Ben at 3 and we went swimming at Holly's pool.. That was lots of fun.. I took him to Tracie's house at 5:30 and his Dad picked Ben up to be with him until Friday, then he comes back to his mom's house.. I feel bad for divorced kids.. back and forth back and forth. But Ben seems to have adjusted and does the change easily.
