Lovely to have Dad home
Below: With Brendon off this week he and the children managed to do a bit of work on the stones a few times (thank you Lord for the wonderful weather that made this possible). Hannah was such a hard worker and sifted through loads on her own. We got the wrong stones way back in December and this lot has sand that needs to be sifted out of it. So it's really slow going. The results of their work was very evident on the berry patch where the stones go - so that was nice. At least they could see there how much they had accomplished (even though there is still a pile on the drive).
Hezekiah was a great helper in opening all the packages and keeping all the screws together.
He was especially thrilled with the results and put his jacket on a number of times today. :-)
Enjoying the sun after lunch.
Hezekiah getting chased by Asher. :-) And the dogs enjoying a bit of chasing too. :-)
On Tuesday we had gone to the beach (separate post with all those beautiful photos) and just as we were leaving and getting Asher out of her wet clothes - she had a very short vacant seizure. It had been 6 1/2 weeks since her previous day of seizures - so we were thrilled with this nice big gap. Even more than the previous 5 weeks. It was a really small seizure and I realized that it could have been easily missed. She didn't stop breathing or go blue and continued to stand. I just realized when she dropped the stick she was holding (which she would normally not do) and did not help pull her arm out of the top (which she would normally do). She was just still and unresponsive. Rachel helped me get her dry and as dressed as we could. The other children quickly got themselves as sand free as they could and we headed home.
Our week of having Dad home ended on a wonderful high with a full day out on Friday. So many photos they will have to go in 2 more posts. :-)
