Counting Down

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go and meet Nell Ann.  I love her!  The kids told me, “Mom, she looks just like you said…she has brown hair and smiles a lot!”  I can’t wait to get our little guys together to play when we get them home.

And, on our way to meet Nell Ann, Tony called me.  He said Christy called him because she couldn’t get in touch with me.  She had a court date for us…June 1st!  Wow!   That’s pretty fast!  It will actually happen the night of May 31st.  Yes.  I’m being that petty about the countdown.

When I told Bear our court date, she said, “hmm… I don’t know when that is”.  So, we’re off to make a paper chain to count down our days to court.  We need a visual around here.  And, things to keep us busy so time will go fast.   And, I guess we’ll work on our months of the year while we’re at it.
