My husband was out of town this week. He was only gone three days, but Monday (the first day he was gone) was our 18th wedding anniversary. I was very sad that we could not be together that day but am so thankful for the 18 years we have had and look forward to many, many more.

The children and I went to the greenhouse Monday morning to buy some flowers and some vegetables to plant. I have never planted flowers in front of my porch before, but have always wanted to.

Tuesday my brother would have been 41. I miss him so much, but look forward to the day when we all will be together again.
The girls had gymnastics on Tuesday. They have one class left next week.
Chelsea came over and babysat for me Tuesday night because I had to take Nick to a meeting.
Friday we had an end of school year picnic and then had to run Chelsea to the doctor. Later that evening Alex's soccer team had a pizza party.
Sunday the wonderful ladies at my church gave Chelsea a baby shower. Only a few weeks to go!
