Emeri and Eli come to Kansas!

Our son and his wife celebrated their 10th anniversary a little early with a trip to California and a drive on Highway 1 along the coast!

While they were gone, my daughter-in-law's mother, Lisa, watched the children for a few days.

I drove down to Arkansas Monday afternoon to pick them up and bring them back to Kansas with me!

They were great travelers!  Emeri told me "We are born travelers!"  Of course the DVD player is a big help too!

On Wednesday morning, we drove out to Hannah and Sophie's school to celebrate Sophia's birthday.  Hannah wanted us to peek into her classroom to say "hi" but her class was out to recess when we arrived so we were able to give hugs before we went into Sophie's room.

Sophia was brought to the front of the class.
Then Mrs. Burkhart gave her 5 hugs plus 1 to grow on,
and then prayed for her.
My eyes just got quite moist!  It was all so very sweet!

Singing "Happy Birthday"

Sophie and her mommy passed out the treats.
Sophie told her mommy just what she wanted her to make - rice krispie treats and please add M&M's and chocolate frosting on top.  Jill had not made these before but she obliged the birthday girl!

It was fun to look around the room.

After the party, the kindergarteners went outside to PE. 
We decided to take Eli and Emeri to see some pictures of their daddy when he went to school here.

We went home for awhile, then went to meet the bus when kindergarten was out.

The cousins were going to have a fun time!
They spent the afternoon playing.
