Had a wonderful time visiting my family last week. It's always so much fun to spend time with them, and when I get a chance to visit its definitely precious time, since I'm not super close by! I'm amazed at how much the kids have grown lately. I never used to notice as much, seeing them every day. Now a week or sometimes two can go by between seeing them, and I'm shocked. I've especially noticed that Jon is getting taller, Rosie is getting more mature (but she's always been independent!!!), and Jerry is growing his vocabulary. JoyAnna is so responsive, and Grace is fitting quite well into "the oldest at home" role.
