I watched "my" girls from 8:30am to 7:30pm today. Their mama had bought some finger-paint and water-paints, so while Tracy Jo took her morning nap, we painted lots of things, then put them all up on the refrigerator (for a few minutes, then Johanna took them all back down again...). Later, we built forts with the couch pillows and Tracy Jo was having fun putting a blanket over her head and then walking around! Silly little ones! Oh yes... While I was checking some things out on the computer, Johanna climbed up behind me and started playing with my hair. Then, when I turned and looked at her, she said "supise" and giggled. Fun times!
I got home just 1 minute before my mom and Andrew returned home from Bismarck. Dad and Jacob had done the chores, so we ate supper then and later, everyone did what they wanted (the guys read Farm Show I think; Mom was on the computer; and I played piano).
I thought I'd share the forecast with all of you, as I received a special notice in my e-mail-box regarding it.... Have a wonderful day, thanking the Lord for as many blessings as you can think of!
