I have to do one last thing to settle my grandmother’s estate, and since
we are traveling to and from St. Louis anyway, we thought we would ask
Marie if she wanted the kids for a week. She does, and Tori, of course,
was the first one to sign up! She has no qualms about going to
Grandma’s, even if she had to go alone. Lucky for her, Christian has
decided to come. He is looking forward to Legoland, while Tori can’t
wait to see the aquarium. We are sending their birthday money with them
so they can shop. As for Eli, the jury is still out. He says he is going
but gets a little anxious when we tell him we won’t be there.
Speaking of birthdays, Tori has been planning her sleepover for
months now. She has got all kinds of things in her little head as to
what everyone can do. Christian, on the other hand, could care less. He
did not want a party, just the kid next door to sleep over, until a few
days ago. He decided he wanted a party/sleepover, and Huts and I have
been hopping to get it together. We just sent out the invitations
today—keep your fingers crossed that at least one kid can come!
