I have had lots of family visiting and between having been in the hospital and trying to recuperate from being sick and having the family visiting I have not had a lot of time to spend on the computer. Emily flew here from BYU were she is a senior. We have spend lots of time talking and getting to know each other on a different level. It is wonderful to get to know your children on an adult level. Laura is down here from Virginia with her two boys Hayden (2 1/2) and Wyatt (6 mon.). She is doing so well as a mother especially with one in his terrible twos and a little one. My house is not very well child-proofed which adds to the challenge. We now have locks on all the doors so as to limit access which helps. Benn has been down and spent a couple of nights. Of course than there's Tom, Jeremy and myself. What a houseful. We've all had a good time, but it has been stressful for all. I learned a long time ago that any change even a good change causes stress. I love them all and am glad they came and stayed. Everyone of the visiting family was gone yesterday and things are much quieter and it is nice that things are getting back to normal.
