I had a friend make this to hang on her door for when she came in
Had these flowers and a gift waiting on her
I had the door shut and when she saw the hanger she started crying. It was really great to see her face though.
Tay and I went to lunch. Some facial expressions:
Absolutely love this boy
Then it was another night at work for me.

September 27- Tay went to school. I napped while he was in school. A typical Tuesday afternoon with Tay and Anns. Homework, reading, naptime, snacks.
I went to the hospital to visit with Bethany and Grey. Berea, Gracie and Greta (Bethany's two daughters) and I went to eat mexican after leaving the hospital. Both girls had to sit by me.
True story (ask Berea): a guy that works at the restaurant kept asking me some questions. You know the ones: are those your kids, are you married, where's your boyfriend. And Berea is trying so hard to not laugh out loud. I was having a hard time not laughing either. So funny. I've never had someone ask all those questions with other people at my table. I might have turned red. Oh, wait I did.

September 28- Tay went to school. Anns had 60% day and got out at 11:00. In my opinion, what's the point in that? Don't they realize it would just be easier to not go to school at all on those days? But, they do and I go get Anns early. This is the first week that I was picking her up alone. Last year, Tay didn't go to school on Wednesday's and in August he wasn't in school yet. So it was a girls day for Anns and I. We went shopping for a baby gift for my cousin. I let her pick where we had lunch. We picked up Trey from school and then picked up Tay. They all had to rest for naptime. Tay usually goes to sleep and then Trey and Anns play for a little while. They wanted to watch The Lion King on the Ipad and I gave in. When Trey and I left, we went to the hospital to see my cousin and her new baby girl. So sweet. Trey wanted to watch and help with everything. I know that he will be a great big brother. Then I took him for supper while he waited on his mom to get off work and she came and got him from the restaurant. By then, I was very ready to go home to some peace and quiet.

This is essentially an act of faith: believing that I love you with boundless, everlasting Love. The art of receiving is also a discipline: training your mind to trust Me, coming close to Me with confidence.
September 29: When I got up, I didn't really get dressed for the day. The plan for the day was me to take Tay to school and Dr. Hill was meeting his class for a walk to the fire department. Well, life happens and she wasn't able to go. So, I did. And Tay was very excited that I was walking with them to the fire department. Dr. Hill did get to make it for a few minutes and walked Tay back to school. I met up with Hannah to do some paperwork for my Pampered Chef party. Then I ran to Walmart to get things to make for supper at work. I picked Tay up from school and headed home for naptime. I got home a little early and threw an Apple Crumble Cake into the oven. It was ready in time to walk out the door for work.

September 30- Tay and I did a few things in town and I needed to go to my house and pack for my weekend away. I was leaving after work to head to Clinton, TN. So, I guess I should've packed earlier, but I didn't. So we did. He played in the playroom at my house while I through some things into a suitcase. We got Anns from school and it was another typical afternoon. Then it was work and driving for me.
