A visit from Racheal

Racheal flew in late Wednesday night and stayed with us until Sunday morning. It was SO good to see her again. We had a lot of time to chat and she was a huge help with the kids and all too. It was so nice to have someone that didn't mind all the kids and was used to running their own circus as well. Thursday, we toured Waxahachie and then drove out to Cedar Hill and spent some time at Uptown Village. After Andy got home, we ate dinner and then went up to Applebee's for some drinks and dessert. Friday while the littles were in Mother's Day Out, I took her down to the square (with Melina and Deidra) and we shopped the Square and had lunch at The Dove's Nest. Friday night, we went to watch the start of Josiah, Emily, and Tracie's first t-ball game and then we had to leave to take Deidra to her volleyball game. Jimmie met us up there to watch her play. Deidra is doing awesome at serving now and got in about 18 points for her team. I was SO proud of her. She's come a long way since playing last summer. We came home and put the kids to bed and stayed up late talking. Saturday, we went up to North Park mall for some girl time...decided that's a way too upscale mall for us to buy things there, but it was fun walking around and laughing together. We came home and she watched the kids so that Andy and I could get out by ourselves for awhile. Andy and I went to Outback for dinner and then for a walk in the park...then we got a phone call saying that Deidra had locked her bedroom door but left the key inside so we had to make a trip to Wal-mart for something to pick the lock with. Crisis was averted thankfully. Sunday, we had to get everybody ready to take her to the airport...I was sad to see her go. However, I know Tony and her girls missed her as well. I'm going to try to plan something for hte fall so that I can go up there and spend some time with her. We're going to see about making this a yearly thing. It was really good to see her and spend time with her. I miss her already!
