Come and Gone!

Well, the holidays here are officially over. Rich went back to work yesterday, Heidi and Chloe went to school today to start a new semester, and Holly and Ben had to fly back to Ontario. :((

The week with them went really fast, and a good time was had by all! The kids spent the week together mostly in a harmonious way... playing Rock Band and other various video games, shopping, watching movies, playing games, and eating.

It's good to see Holly and Ben making their own way so well. Though I don't always agree with their choices or their way of doing things- the point is, they ARE doing it. They are not running to me for things, they are learning and doing on their own. When they make mistakes, they work it out. When they get things right (and that is a lot of the time!), they get the satisfaction of knowing they got there on their own steam. I am so proud of them!

I feel a little sad though, this will be a longer stretch till we see them again. We left at the end of June, they came here at the beginning of October, and again just now. Summer seems a long time away.

But they have school and their lives to keep them busy and so do the girls and I. Thank goodness for internet, e-mail, and telephones! Oh, the mail is good too... lol
